My main storage partition got full, so I'm deleting files to make room. However, df -k keeps reporting no space available on that partition (/disk). Here's the output of the command several minutes apart while another process is deleting a 30G of space:
What can I do to make the space available immediately?
THANK YOU all for your help!
I kept deleting files and once it got to a certain point, my space started appearing back in the space available column. I did remove the trash but that was a couple of hours before I posted the message, so I don't think that was preventing the space from being reported as available again.
As per any processes, I checked all cron jobs and all running processes but didn't find anything that could have being causing the issue. I didn't have to reboot :-)
Anyway, I ges it needed to have a certain amount of space before releasing it for general use.
