Fat32 Disk full fault
Whats going on?
Hi and Welcome !
Does Linux lists files/folders of Flash drive? What is the output of this
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs 1.4G 115M 1.3G 9% /
/dev/sda1 1.4G 115M 1.3G 9% /
unionfs 1.4G 115M 1.3G 9% /
tmpfs 443M 12K 443M 1% /dev/shm
tmpfs 128M 52K 128M 1% /tmp
/dev/sdc1 7.5G 7.5G 0 100% /media/DataBar USB2.0/USB_STICK
as you can see it report dev/sdc1 as full when I know it is not. All the files/folders are accessable. If i look at the properties of the root folder on that device it reports 5000 files in 350 folders occupying 4.5GB which is about right.
Check if there is any hidden folder.
Just tried a quick experiment, place a large file (350mb) on the usb stick in windows, plugged it in to the linux machine and deleted it.
df -h reports
dev/sdc1 7.5G 7.2G 321M 96% /media/DataBar USB2.0/USB_STICK
Is there any Recycled Folder in USB Stick?
no hidden folders.... or Recycle folders
I'm going to fill up the free space with large files in windows then delete them in linux to see if i get the free space back
That worked, got the free space back. So I've got a fix but would love to know what is going on.
