People,

I started deleting GBs of stuff from:

/dev/sdb1 /backup

but df did not reduce from 95% so I looked more closely and found this 
weirdness:

# du -s -BG 20180216
43G     20180216

# du -s -BG 20180216/*
1G      20180216/naf_dirs
43G     20180216/phil
1G      20180216/root

# du -s -BG 20180216/phil/*
1G      20180216/phil/0
1G      20180216/phil/0_finance
1G      20180216/phil/0_naf
1G      20180216/phil/Maildir
1G      20180216/phil/txts
1G      20180216/phil/vimwiki

Where has ~37GB disappeared to?  There are no files held open and I have 
successfully umounted and re-mounted the partition - what is going on?

That "du -s -BG 20180216/phil/*" is ignoring any "dot"
files/directories under 20180216/phil .

It's better to leave out the "-s" option and use the "--max-depth"
option to limit the depth of the display.
    du -BG --max-depth=1 20180216/phil


Damn, I should have thought of that - normally, outside of .config, there would 
not be much in my dot dirs - but I had been experimenting with cryptocurrency 
nodes . .

Thanks for the useful tips!

Regards,

Just one question on this, is the scaling that the -BG screwing around with the 
results of du as shown below?

bash-4.4$ du -s -BG /home/steve
8G      /home/steve

bash-4.4$ du -s -BG /home/steve/*
1G      /home/steve/andrew
1G      /home/steve/config
1G      /home/steve/Desktop
1G      /home/steve/Documents
1G      /home/steve/Downloads
1G      /home/steve/gtk.css
1G      /home/steve/jxbrowser-browser.log
1G      /home/steve/jxbrowser-chromium.log
1G      /home/steve/jxbrowser-ipc.log
1G      /home/steve/jxbrowser-ipc.log.1
0G      /home/steve/jxbrowser-ipc.log.1.lck
0G      /home/steve/jxbrowser-ipc.log.lck
1G      /home/steve/l10n
1G      /home/steve/Music
1G      /home/steve/NetBeansProjects
1G      /home/steve/Pictures
1G      /home/steve/Public
1G      /home/steve/R
3G      /home/steve/rpmbuild
1G      /home/steve/Templates
1G      /home/steve/Videos
1G      /home/steve/workspace

du -s -BG /home/steve/workspace/*
1G      /home/steve/workspace/basics.zip_expanded
1G      /home/steve/workspace/jsf-blank.zip_expanded
1G      /home/steve/workspace/jsffacletstutorial
1G      /home/steve/workspace/libraries
1G      /home/steve/workspace/RemoteSystemsTempFiles
1G      /home/steve/workspace/Servers
1G      /home/steve/workspace/test-app
1G      /home/steve/workspace/whirlwind

Of course it is. Any size greater than 0 and not exceeding 1GB will show as 1G. It's 
answering the question, "How many blocks 1GB in size would it take to hold 
this?" Anything of non-zero size will take at least 1 such block.

So, your "workspace" directory contains 8 things, none of which is larger than 
1G, and the total space for all of them is also less than 1G.
