    Hey, I was getting some errors today about driver warnings. It reached 92%. I deleted the backup files of monthly and weekly, but it's still running high, 60%.



    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    rootfs 10G 5.6G 3.9G 60% /
    /dev/root 10G 5.6G 3.9G 60% /
    none 7.9G 140K 7.9G 1% /dev
    /dev/sda2 1.8T 1003M 1.8T 1% /home
    tmpfs 7.9G 0 7.9G 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/loop0 485M 11M 449M 3% /tmp
    /dev/loop0 485M 11M 449M 3% /var/tmp
    root@server1 [~]#


    Can you guys give me any help on how to get rid of some of that, and get the Driver space back down?

    Please use the following to learn about the du command to find the size of files within a directory:

    du (Unix) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can use du to look in the / directory to see what are the largest files and folders.

    I know what files are taking up such amount of space, but how can I free them?

    Hello :)

    You will need to remove files, or move them to another partition in order to free up disk space. Increasing the size of the partition may be possible, but that would require manual intervention from the data center and you could have to format the drive.

    Thank you.
