Card full even though I've deleted files

Sun Jul 29, 2012 9:19 pm

Hi my wheezy install full even though it is an 8gb card. I have obviously expanded the partition. I have downloaded several large video files then deleted them, moving them to the rubbish folder.

When I try to delete the files in the rubbish folder it says they don't exist! Why?

I can't understand where all the space has gone as I have little program's installed. Can anyone give me some tips?

Hello,

Making a operation on filesystem (move/copy/delete) doesn't mean this operation is immediately done.
For example, if you power down your Rpi just after an operation on filesystem, be sure the operation would be lost.

Unmounting mass storage devices, and halting properly your Rpi are safe practices.

Hope it helps.

Is There just a terminal command like

Code: Select all

sudo Init 5
? Then it will do it for you?

Doesn't it clear the tmp folder on boot, or am I just tired?
