    router disk usage increasing


    So recently my previous router crashed so I decided to merge it with my file storage machine.

    I got it up and running, this was no problem, but the disk usage on the / partition keeps growing.
    I originally had a 3 GB partition for this, but had to increase to 6 GB due to running out of space and over night somehow this has increased to fill up to almost 6 GB.

    The only thing I can think of is that I downloaded a lot from bit torrent over night, but these files are being saved to the other drive in my system, not the / partition.

    Anyone know if there are some temp files being created by this or log files maybe? I am at a loss for exactly how this could happen. Using azureus on my windows box to download directly to a mapped network drive on the file server/router (debian based).

    Check your log files. You can create a script to archive them (make them a tarball and then remove them on a daily or weekly basis) and that should help out a little, there.

    If I were you, I'd make a seperate partition for your downloads. 6GB for the root partition '/' isn't a lot these days.

    How large is your hard disk?
    I praise Webmin and PuTTy!
