View Full Version : Home directory limit

24-Apr-2012, 09:40
Hello everybody !
I have an issue with sled 11 , i reach 100 gb in /home/user directory and sled tells me that the space is full . The partition of home dir doesn't have quota on and the size of partition is 400 gb. So why does sled show this warning ?

I wrapped the info in CODE tags to make it a bit more readable. (Look for # button when composing post.)

Well I can't see a problem there. Plenty of space in /home and, haven't used up all the inodes and you're using ext3 so it's not one of those issues which I've seen a few times with btrfs deciding I'm out of space even when I'm clearly not. You're running tight on space on / though, as you sure the message about space isn't about / rather than /home?

Can you post details of the message you're seeing (including the exact wording or a screenshot), along with details of the circumstances under which it occurs?
