disk space is full ( / is 100% in use)


Hi All Linux people,

Well, I am facing a problem, When i run the command

]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2 31G 30.4G 500M 100% /
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 99M 15M 79M 16% /boot
none 1004M 0 1004M 0% /dev/shm

even when i check the size of each folder with the command (du -sh / du -h), the compelte size of all folders is not more then 10G.
/var show the 6G and when i check all folder size manually with the command (du -sh / du -h), i can see its not more then 1G.

Can any one recommend something .. what should i do know? Any command that can work like we run scandisk in window and then it shows the proper size.

waiting for your earlier response.

Thanks
Sam

try this
Code:
/home/crashedagain# du -sh /*
you should get something like
Code:
3.8M    /bin
25M     /boot
0       /cdrom
244K    /dev
4.0K    /dvd
15M     /etc
which should give you some indication where the disk is being filled up.
