I recently received a warning, that my home-partition is full. It is an Ext4-Partition mounted on
/dev/sda is a 240 GB SSD:
hannes@XFLR6 ~> df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 19G 5.2G 13G 30% / none 3.9G 792K 3.9G 1% /dev none 3.9G 2.4M 3.9G 1% /dev/shm none 3.9G 712K 3.9G 1% /var/run none 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /var/lock /dev/sda5 193G 175G 7.9G 96% /home /dev/sdb5 357G 92G 264G 26% /mnt/schacht
as you can see,
df -h (and gparted) reports that
/dev/sda5 is 96% full. However, the Ubuntu Disk Usage Analyzer and
du -h only find about 89 GB of data.
~/.gvfs is empty and there are no other filesystems mounted below
/home. How can that be? I have already tried running
du as root, but it doesn't change anything.

Edit: whoops - I only ran
~ not on
/home – there was a lot of data unintentionally copied to
/home. My bad, sorry.
