No space on root after large move operation
 
Ok, so I tried to move 2.7TB of data from my /var/webroot/ partition (4.5TB total in size). I left it to run over night, this morning when I came to check I saw that all data on / paratition is used up and no operations can be done because of the "no space left on device" message.
Code:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0p7    911G  911G    0 100% /
tmpfs                7.9G    0  7.9G  0% /lib/init/rw
udev                  10M  736K  9.3M  8% /dev
tmpfs                7.9G    0  7.9G  0% /dev/shm

/dev/cciss/c0d1      4.5T  1.7T  2.6T  39% /var/webroot/

I freed up several hundred MB from / but still the usage is at 100% and I cant free up any more space or complete the transfer ?

Where were you moving the data to ?
According to your listings, the only place big enough was the place you were moving it from.
I hope you have backups ...

If you can't log in as a single user and move the data back, you'll have to get a live cd and clean the root directory out like that. Put all the moved data back on the original drive.
