I'm running out of disk, but don't know what is using it up. DiskUsageAnalyzer can't see the problem either.
df shows the disk getting full
$ df -k / Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda2 483429920 447182672 11667308 98% /
du shows only 68.9 G used (far less than the 447G shown by
$ sudo du -sk / du: cannot access '/run/user/1000/gvfs': Permission denied du: cannot access '/proc/12251/task/12251/fd/3': No such file or directory du: cannot access '/proc/12251/task/12251/fdinfo/3': No such file or directory du: cannot access '/proc/12251/fd/4': No such file or directory du: cannot access '/proc/12251/fdinfo/4': No such file or directory 68915724 /
The same thing can be seen in Disk Usage Analyzer (
sudo baobab). When started, it shows a near full filesystem that I can select for analysis
`filesystem root / 43.8 GB available 495 GB total
but clicking on that filesystem to analyze usage shows that / uses only 57.1 GB. and leaves me stuck trying to figure out how to clear my disk space
How can I find out what is using the space if I can't trust
du to find it?
