The error is due to no physical disk space. Your purge command is only for the backups previously created so if you don't have any then there will be none to purge.

I suspect you will have a few extra files that are not needed on your system.

What kind if system are you trying to run this on? I assume it's a SPLAT based open server or CP appliance?  If so the you can determine where the lack of space is most prominent.

Log in as the expert user and cd into the root dir and run the following commands

cd /
du

This will give you an idea of what partition is full.

Then cd into that dir and run "df -sh --max-depth 1

This will give you a listing of the largest files and folders. You can then iterate through all the large folders and either delete or backup the errant files to free up space.

Thanks for the help.

I found out what I was doing wrong. In the Dashboard, for the Management console, I checked the settings in Logs and Masters to “Required Free Disk Space” and maxed the Mbytes and pushed policy. I checked free space and it is okay. I then lowered the max free space to a lower level and added free space alerts.
