Linux show's 138 GB of 145 Used but 0% disk space avilable
Posted on 2010-09-22
I recently had a linux server where I ran out of disk space and wasn't able to get any services started. It's onthe LVM2 filesystem... I fixed the previous problems and was able to dump a few of the databases. However, now I've deleted more files and got over 7GB free. However, it says that there is 0% available. I have 138 out of 145 used but I don't have any disk space available.
Everytime I delete files it shows less being used but still none available.
I researched around and people told me it's because services are using the files etc etc... So I killed all the services and still nothing. so then I booted into a rescue CD and tried to delete files that way. But still nothing frees up.
Any suggestions or what I'm doing wrong?
I'm deleting folders with the rm -rf command.
Thanks a lot in advance.
