Since /dev/ad0s1e (your /var partition) is larger than /dev/ad0s1a (the root partition) this will quickly fill the root partition to 100% and start grabbing blocks from the "reserved space" (the default is 8% of the partition). You are running this as root and FreeBSD doesn't block you at 100% but goes on merrily with its job until both the partition and the reserved space are full (100 + 8 = 108%; this is why the usage percentage in / is listed as 107% and not as 100%). > Thanks again for any help.
