Trending 4 months ago

Recently I yet decided to update my system, and correct aft nan update I ran into a problem: earlier update baobab showed astir 22 GB disposable space, and aft nan update it went down to astir 8.

Here's immoderate info, that mightiness beryllium relevant:

  • Before upgrading Ubuntu type I grew nan linux partition (I tally windows/ubuntu dualboot) by ~16 GB, which seems adjacent to nan abstraction missing

  • df output:

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on tmpfs 788700 1976 786724 1% /run /dev/nvme0n1p8 53050368 48246568 4054792 93% / tmpfs 3943496 0 3943496 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5120 4 5116 1% /run/lock /dev/nvme0n1p8 53050368 48246568 4054792 93% /home /dev/nvme0n1p7 998060 133944 795304 15% /boot /dev/nvme0n1p1 364544 89768 274776 25% /boot/efi tmpfs 788696 104 788592 1% /run/user/1000
  • du -h / shows 23G, aforesaid for ncdu and baobab. du -h /home — 13G. Overall I person 54.3G disk space, truthful (23+13)/54 doesn't adhd up to 93% displayed by df.

I know, that df and du show different information, but this quality seems excessively big.

  • sudo lsof | grep deleted | wc -l shows 8433 deleted files that are still successful use. The number stays astir that aft reboot.

  • I besides tried booting pinch liveUSB and moving 'check' connected partition via GParted.

I reviewed a batch of different stackoverflow posts, each having akin answers, that didn't thief me.

I tried immoderate methods to find what consumes each nan space, but couldn't fig it out. Also, nan problem seems to beryllium getting worse (right now baobab shows only ~5GB avaliable space). I fishy that this mightiness beryllium immoderate benignant of a hidden increasing log file, but I don't cognize really to find it. I zeroed files successful /var/log, but that didn't hole nan problem.

Can you thief maine find nan root of nan problem?
