So I'm getting a root partition as full after some errors. Here is what I'm seeing.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sdb1 175G 175G 0 100% / none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup udev 7.8G 4.0K 7.8G 1% /dev tmpfs 1.6G 1.4M 1.6G 1% /run none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none 7.9G 0 7.9G 0% /run/shm none 100M 0 100M 0% /run/user overflow 1.0M 0 1.0M 0% /tmp
As you can see here. I kind of know what happened. I migrated my server to new hardware. My backup USB drive changed UUIDs. I was tired and put the wrong one. So the root drive mounted to / and /backups. When the RSYNC job ran to backup I'm sure it was one hell of a loop. I get what happened but what I can't figure out for the life of me is how to recover these files. I've since taken that part out of my
/etc/fstab file. Then removed the backups directory. I've ran all kinds of things like NCDU,
df -h, etc and I cannot find where these "double" files would've be. It's the only thing I can think of that may have caused this. Again I can't find these double files anywhere but my disk is showing as full so they must be somewhere....Any help or tips are appreciated.
