There is a FAQ, numerous questions threads and several articles in online publications on this issue. I am sure you can easily find them with some basic searching. Most of the problems/confusions come from two places. The first is that an amount - normally 8% - is held out for root. The second is processes that open/create a file to write and then delink it but do not release it and continue to write to it. It doesn't show up, but is still taking space. The processes do this so if they get killed, the space is automatically released. ////jerry > > Thanks and regards > > > ---- > Alexander Varshavchick, Metrocom Joint Stock Company > Phone: (812)718-3322, 718-3115(fax) > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
