Samba Share Size


Hi All

I've set up a Samba share for 5 XP Users. I managed to get everything working fine, until I started filling up my shared folders.

On my Linux Box, I have a 40 Gb HD, with Fedora Core 2, Squid and Samba, but when I copy my music folder (3Gb) to the Linux box, it says there is not enough disk space.

Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

R :-)

depends how your partitions are set up. remember that the 40gb is going to (hopefully) be subdivided into a number of areas, which aren't able to share space between them, e.g. /home, /usr, /boot, / etc...

Agreed, but I surely have about 36Gb to play with after my /home, /boot etc areas have been created. I've set squid to use 200mb in my squid.conf but that's it.

this was were you were meant to show your partition table to us... "fdisk -l" after you /home etc... are created the rest will be unpartitioned... unless / is using it all up by default. but you need to provide some useful information for us to comment...

Oops.... only 20 Gb...

Disk /dev/hda: 20.0 GB, 20020396032 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38792 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 4063 2047720+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 4064 7111 1536192 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda3 7112 10159 1536192 83 Linux
[root@router root]# Disk /dev/hda: 20.0 GB, 20020396032 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38792 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Hope that makes sense to you.

Show also the post for:

# df -h

This is your exact disk utilizations that corresponds to your partitions in human readable output.

Here's my df -h output:

[root@router root]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 2.0G 1.9G 17M 100% /
none 30M 0 30M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3 1.5G 219M 1.2G 16% /var

To make the folders I'm sharing, I went
cd /
mkdir /data/mp3

So would I be right in assuming it's on hda1 ???

Thanks so far for your patience :-)

It's because your / partition (/dev/hda1) is just 2GB and there is only 17Mb (0.017G) available currently. Resize your disk and reinstall everything. Backup your important config files and data.

For partitioning tips I can refer you to Debian's site:

http://www.debian.org/releases/stab...ng.en.html#s6.4

Just make your swap at least twice your RAM
