@DaveMG df -h from a shell prompt will return disk-usage statistics so you can verify none of the disk partitions are at, or close to, 100% usage.

Hi Dave, A short note to let you know that I'll be able to follow-up again with you by the weekend. My day job keeps me busy into the evenings and so I thought I'd simply drop a courtesy note to you here to let you know I haven't disappeared. Leland
