SLES 11 sp3 running only Data-Synchronizer Mobility.
I had an issue where the /var was loosing space progressively, I deleted backups and Log files and when I run a df -h the results did not reflect all the work I was doing.
There was nothing in my trash as per the Gnome desktop logged in as root.
Thru a series of events I discovered the hidden /var/.trash-0 folder contained 38Gb of files.
Can anyone give a "newbie" an explanation of why a deleted file does not appear in the trash can and why it is hidden in /var/.Trash-0 ?
If I clean up in the future what should I do differently?
