Hi,

Is there a way you can find out how full a disk partition is?
I didn't find it using fdisk.

Thanks.

Dave, I have a problem that you may not the answer too...
My HDB1 is listed in df as 100% full!!! And it should only be like 53% full.
I recently had a crash that made me shut off the computer, but whenI
rebooted, e2fsck apeared to fix the drive... but I quess not. how can I get
my other 47% or so of space back???

email too would realy help speed this disasster up...
Daevid.

        Type df at your prompt.. It'll give you a percentage of used
space and many more important items.. fdisk is for working woth the disk..

                        Have fun..

1. Disk full on non-full disk???

On a Dell v2.2 system I have a 2G disk partitioned as ~300M root and
~1.4G /home (I know it doesn't add up :-)
The system is saying the /home partition is full even though df reports
blocks and inodes available?

$ df -vi
Mount Dir  Filesystem        blocks     used     free %used iused  ifree %iused
/        /dev/root           601562   460352   141210  76%  22896 171664  11%
/proc    /proc                    0        0        0   0%     75    951   7%
/dev/fd  /dev/fd                  0        0        0   0%     66      0 100%
/home    /dev/dsk/0s3       2813640  2439692   373948  86%  92123 975141   8%
/stand   /dev/dsk/0s10        14336    11044     3292  77%      8    128   5%

Could this be some sort of kernel table overflow/corruption, some parameter needs
