Disk full on EXT4 partition

i have a RPI2 with the latest OSMC and attached it to is a USB 3.0 HDD NTFS (HDD1) formatted with transmission, sickrage and couchpotato installed and pointing to /media/HDD/xxx. I have another USB HDD (HDD2) attached to my router. After running into download speed isues i decided to format a FAT32 partition on my HDD2 and make it EXT4. After i was done, i wanted to test the download speeds so i added a file and it downloaded great except that it was still pointing at the HDD1 (transmission folder /media/HDD/incomplete) then i added manually another file and set the location to /mnt/HDD2/incomplete it started well then said disk is full. HDD2 is a 2TB disk with 1TB NTFS and 1TB EXT4 (nothing on it), so how can it say its full when its actually empty…now when i rebooted and tried to access sickrage (192.168.1.xxx) i get a message about opt/sickrage error disk full only transmission interface is still accessible. I looked at /temp and osmc/downloads and home/transmission and cna’t find any big files there. Any idea whats happening?

Have you set permissions for this folder correctly?

sudo chown -R osmc:osmc /mnt/HDD2/incomplete
sudo chmod -R 775 /mnt/HDD2/incomplete

You need pass those commands, either over ssh or connect a keyboard. I’m assuming the transmission is being started by the osmc user:

Also the output of the following, will also provide more info:


Thanks Tom.

i did chown to osmc user and it did download to it 10% of the file then said disk full rebooted and now i can’t launch sickrage nor couchpotato i will output the df once i get home :slight_smile: thanks

How are you mounting /media/HDD/incomplete & /media/HDD2/incomplete, because they should be listed when you run df.

Where are the completed torrents being saved to?

How big is your sd card? I ask because your root partition (/dev/mmcblk0p2) is showing 100% full. This is possible the cause of your issue. I would clear any unwanted files from /home/osmc/

Thanks Tom.

My HDD1 is auto mounted under/media/sda1

My HDD2 IS MOUNTED via fstab

/dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot vfat defaults,noatime,noauto,x-systemd.automoun$# rootfs is not mounted in fstab as we do it via initramfs. Uncomment for re$// /mnt/NAS/ cifs noauto,x-systemd.automount,guest,uid=1000,$// /mnt/NAS_OSMC/ cifs noauto,x-systemd.automount,guest,uid
My sd card is 16gb

User probably had a mount failure and torrent client created and populated directories at his mount point. Disks, if mounting, possibly now appearing as /media/mount.point(1), exacerbating the issue

So what should i do

Go look at your Mount points, are they duplicated?

/dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot vfat defaults,noatime,noauto,x-systemd.automoun$
#rootfs is not mounted in fstab as we do it via initramfs. Uncomment for re$
// /mnt/NAS/ cifs noauto,x-systemd.automount,guest,uid=1000,$
// /mnt/NAS_OSMC/ cifs noauto,x-systemd.automount,guest,uid$

your fstab does not mention /media/HDD/incomplete or /media/HDD2/incomplete. Also my understanding is that fstab mounts, get mounted under /mnt; e.g. /mnt/HDD/incomplete. This would also need to be changed on the transmission settings.

I assumed when I read this earlier I thought you meant you had a fat32 partition, which you reformatted as ext4; is this the case?

Thanks Tom.

It just automounts I guess as it appears under /media/My Passport/ (that’s HDD1)
/mnt/NAS_OSMC/ (HDD2) Is MOUNTED with fstab as you can see
Both hdds contain incomplete folders
And I don’t have any mount points the way I see It, I just don’t understand how the sd card got full as I don’t download anything on it

Here’s what I get when trying to access socks are

Whats the output of:

cd /media

Thanks Tom.

@SuperLmnt, /mnt/NAS_OSMC is NOT actually mounted; look at your df output.

What happens if you try to manually mount it

sudo mount /mnt/NAS_OSMC

Hmmm you are right it says no such device. But it was mounting correctly yesterday I was able to access through /mnt/ now it says no such device

osmc@osmc:~$ cd /media/ ls
osmc@osmc:/media$ ls
My Passport README

Is your /mnt/NAS_OSMC mountpoint missing?

ls -l /mnt


Apologies its been a long day and somewhere along the line in reading this read I got it in my head, that HDD2/incomplete was under media; re-reading I can see it is in fact under mnt.

Please advise on the output of this:

cd /mnt


osmc@osmc:~$ ls -l /mnt/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 osmc osmc 0 May 4 07:18 NAS
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 1 1970 NAS_OSMC

I guess it’s the userownership that’s causing the problem

I would just change the mountpoint permissions to 777

sudo chmod 777 /mnt/NAS /mnt/NAS_OSMC

And then try to mount again.

It could be a permissions issue, but I thought you had configured transmission while downloading to point to /media/HDD1/incomplete or /mnt/HDD2/incomplete. Neither of which appear to exist as mounts in osmc?
