I have seen some questions and I know that Ubuntu reserves 5% of filesystem to root. Believe me this is not the case.
I was moving some files from my home folder to another partition and I had to cancel the copying process due to some reason (the copy didn't stop abruptly, I cancelled it). Now when I try to move the remaining files I get error
Error opening file '/media/sda5/Android/carbon/external/icu4c/i18n/ucol_bld.h': No space left on device. The destination partition has 85Gb free and my source (Ubuntu home) partition has 12Gb free (total of 48Gb, 5% of 48 is not 12).
Is there any other reason why I might get this error? How do i fix it?
Note: The path from which I was moving had a lot of directories and sub-directories. (It was android source actually. So you can imagine.) I don't know if that information might be useful.

Please note that the partitions in question are
I just noticed that I am even unable to create new documents in my partition
/dev/sda5 (all the more reason to panic)
Edit 3: I fired
sudo strace mv. Here is the output. I don't really understand it a lot.
