I’m really stuck, and about to rebuilt my 4K+; as a last step before I do this I thought I would through out a post for help.
I know enough about linux to be dangerous, I’m hoping that someone out there which knows more than I do might like to share their knowledge.
I appear to be using all my space in /.
In the past when this has happened I’ve found that the /mnt local mount points are full of files because the os couldn’t assess my NAS. I fixed the problem by unmounting and using ncdu to delete local files in mount (following by adding the auto mount thing to my to-do list, which I never get round to doing).
In this case, I’ve unmounted all my mounts just to make sure the directories were’t filling up locally.
When I run ncdu / I can’t see the culprit in /mnt.
When I look in /mnt my tvrecordings directory has some unusual permissions, and I think this might be the problem.
Here are some clues to the puzzle. Please please gentle with your commentary on my (emerging) linux CLI skills …
Commands I’ve tried. You can see my poor attempts to fix … combination of a few google searches and a bit of guessing and trying to remember basic linux fs commands.
I’ve also tried fsck -cy as I thought it could be corrupt fs.
Suggestions on how I might delete what I think is the offending directory very much appreciated.
