HDD seems to be full, but is not!
 
I have a HDD with 40GB free, but occasionally I get a message that the disk is full and that I cannot write to it. MLdonkey is running on this disk, and it pauses some downloads, because the disk is full, but it normally and successfully completes others. So this is very paradox!
the hdd has this entry in /etc/fstab:
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/data ext2 defaults,user 0 0

Anybody know what could cause this problem? MLdonkey? disk corruption?

Thanks for any help!

What happens when you type the df command?

~> df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc1 111G 63G 42G 61% /mnt/data

looks normal..

/mnt/data> cat >test

cat: write error: No space left on device
/mnt/data> df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc1 111G 63G 42G 61% /mnt/data
