Sad Face - /dev/vero-nand/root is 100% Full


#1

I get a very sad face.

my disk /dev/vero-nand/root says it is 100% used.

I’ve tried rebooting to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Geoff.

Can you still login via SSH? If that is the case that uregnetly first delete 1 or 2 big files. After that install ncdu to figure out what is taking your space.
Details regarding how to access the command line interface can be found here on our Wiki: https://osmc.tv/wiki/general/accessing-the-command-line/


#3

yup. SSH all good.

can’t seem to cd to see contents…

bash: cd: /dev/vero-nand/root: Not a directory

What is this drive? Why can’t I cd to it?

Cheers, Geoff.

This is a “device” which is mounted under / means you can start by checking /home/osmc to delete some files. As soon as you have some space you can install ncdu sudo apt-get install ncdu and then use ncdu / to investigate.


#5

After this operation, 76.8 kB of additional disk space will be used.
E: You don’t have enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/

mmmm…


#6

As I wrote first you need to delete soem files e.g. for /home/osmc/ or /home/osmc/.kodi/temp!!!


#7

thx, sorted. Resilio-Sync created too many log files. Set log TTL <30 days = solution.

I still only have 1GB spare of 14GB…does this ncdu look right?

/opt is my external drive. I think I ncdu’d root dir…doesn’t seem to add up…am I missing something?

/opt should not be your external drive as it is part of OSMC!!!
You should mount your drive either under /media if it is automounted or /mnt if you manually mount it!


#10

thanks, I’ll remount under /mnt - cheers for the help mate.

I worked out the problem … my fstab mount wasn’t working and stuff was writing to / , not to /dev/sda1. Will re-educate myself on the simplicities of fstab ;). Cheers, Geoff.
