I attempted to mv a 14GB file from my local filesystem to a smb share on my windows system.
The mv failed and, after checking
df, the file doesn't appear in the index, yet the space is still taken.
I don't really care about this file, as it was only a backup tar that can be recreated, so my goal is to get rid of the file entirely.
lsof|grep did not return anything for the file. extundelete wouldn't install properly, so I'm running out of ideas.
I'm limited to a 60GB hdd on a laptop with only 30% left so I don't have many options as far as extracting lost files from the filesystem. I just want to get rid of the file now (it was in the home path ~/). Any thoughts?
