/dev/sda7 is listed as 100% full. I already requested help from others more knowledgeable than me, and someone had me run "sudo chmod 755 /dev/sda7 -R", which I've since been told that could have screwed up my system. My end-goal is simply to bring
/dev/sda7 down to 60% used, when I run "df".
Note: I'm not able to copy and paste, as I'm using TTY1. But here are the results, the old-fashioned way.
df -H Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda7 41G 39G 0 100% / none 4.1k 0 4.1k 0% /sys/fs/cgroup udev 976M 4.1k 976M 1% /dev tmpfs 198M 1.1M 197M 1% /run none 5.3M 0 5.3M 0% /run/lock none 989M 5.5M 984M 1% /run/shm none 105M 25k 105M 1% /run/user overflow 1.1M 8.2k 1.1M 1% /tmp none 989M 36M 953M 4% /tmp/guest-msHuGq /home/d/.Private 41G 39G 0 100% /home/d
Note: BOLD text denotes text returned in yellow font color, instead of standard color.
Edit. First off, thanks for the response, AND explanations. Much appreciated. Here are some results.
du -ah /mnt | sort -h -r | head -n 10 sort: write failed: /tmp/sortuCKknB: No space left on device
I think the ls command was able to help some here? And yes, i'm pretty sure, but lack the knowledge to verify that /dev/sda7 is my primary partition, the one i'm using right now.
ls /mnt bin boot cdrom dev etc home initrd.img initrd.img.old lib lost+found media mnt opt proc root run sbin srv sys **tmp** usr var vmlinuz vmlinuz.old
Above, bold denotes text highlighted in green.
I also think I mistakenly typed at one point:
du -ah /mnt(without the added options/modifiers -- typo'd "enter" on the pipe |). That returned a massive list that scrolled on for ~10mins. (Sadly, i'm unable to copy & paste it as I'm in TTY1, and neither the mouse, nor most ctrl commands work there. I've poked around into how to copy & paste in TTY, and it seems to require downloading a program, which i don't expect to have room on this partition to download.)
I can type out the results of
sudo fdisk -l if need be, including start & end numbers, blocks, ID, and system info for each partition, per request...?
EDIT: SUCCESS! /dev/sda7 down to 78%; /home/d/.Private down to 78%! I'm now able to log into user d's account!
Now i just have minor questions, like how to delete sub-directories, and directories with ()s, since they give error messages. But again, minor.
Thanks to everybody who posted helpful suggestions!@
/dev/sda7? If you post that then people can give better answers about what to either delete or move to another partition..
