    Free space on filesystem 0MB after "grep" command ?


    Hi folks,
    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!

    Hello,
    welcome to the forums. did you ever find out what might be the problem here....are you still needing help? It sounds pretty bad.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    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.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
