If you delete a file that is currently in use, then the space will not be freed until all processes have closed it. So if you delete a large log file you may need to restart rsyslogd. Or if you have upgraded or removed packages you may need to restart or kill the relevant applications. A log file can even continue to grow after it has been deleted, if something is still writing to it.kghunt wrote:Yes I enlarged my root partition in gparted before I first booted the Pi. I removed a load of packages and deleted some logs. I rebooted and not it is reporting 1.3 GB free? It didn't seem to update automatically until I rebooted.
That's right, it won't help with the problem you answered, where you delete a large log file but it is still taking up space as the handle is still open.jojopi wrote:This does not appear to be able to detect files with no remaining links.asb wrote:ncdu is your friend here.
