/dev/sda3 230G 220G 10G 100% /
OS: Ubuntu (same thing happens on a straight Debian system)
Kernel: i686 generic
Hardware: using PCI SATA card (maybe this is the problem?)
Filesystem: ReisferFS(same thing happens with EXT3 though)
As you can see from the output, there is 10 Gigs of free space on this ReisferFS partition.
The problem is that you can also see it reports being 100% used.
I don't care if I loose 10 gigs of space but here is the problem.
I make FTP backups, and sometimes the space gets taken up before I can clear it out daily.
Once this situation happens I can still write data to the drive! The data gets successfully written, but guess what....the data written at the end of the partition gets written over, with the new data.
I verified this using md5sums of the original backup files.
So the question is, what is causing this undesired behaviour of data corruption at the end of the partition, or more like overwriting parts of other files to make them corrupt?
What can be done about this?
And also smart reports everything with this drive is fine.
Any help would be appreciated.
