Any ideas?
First of all, try to track down where all the space has gone, by using `df' and `du' with the -x option. For example, you can get a good idea of which places in your root filesystem are the top-10 users of space with: # cd / # du -xm . | sort -nr | head -10 If this doesn't show up a lot of stuff, then there's probably a rogue process which has opened a file and then removed it, so it's not directly visible by traversing the tree with `du', but you can still look for it with: # fstat -f / | sort -k +8 After you get this sort of information, we can make more informed suggestions about the best way to move forward :) _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
