Running Ubuntu 18.04 of a 256GB SSD with full disk encryption and an additional 1TB harddisk mounted for larger files. I keep getting "Low on space" notifications because "The filesystem root
/" is filling up (supposedly).
The weird thing is, when I look at Disk Analyzer, it will also count the files stored on the 1TB drive for the used space calculation of
/. Most space is used by the
/media/<username>/Harddisk folder, which is the mount point for the 1TB drive:
Any idea what's wrong here? Why does my 1TB drive mounted under
/media/<username>/Harddisk use up space on
/? I double checked with the command
df -h and get the same results.
I unmounted the 1TB drive to see what happens then. The used up space disappears, but root is still almost full:
And here's the
df -h output:
