Free space on filesystem 0MB after "grep" command ?
yesterday I've tun this command in terminal:
grep -a -A17000 -B17000 localhost /dev/sda2 | strings > recovered_file
but without to "unmount /home"
after that the ubuntu warned me that there is not enought disk space on file system partition. Now I've deleted a file of 2 gb and the system calculated only 50 mb free space, which in about minutes were gone and again the free size was 0 mb. I've tried to remove one more file of 3 GB and the same thing happened again. I don't know what to do folks, please help me!

Linux reserves about 10% of your disc space for management purposes (root only) so even if a user seems to run out of disc space, root (the admin account) can still work on cleaning up the disc space.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
