PostPosted: Wed 09 Mar 2011, 23:10    Post_subject:  Personal storage warning  

This is a cross posting from Beginner's Help

When I get the warning that personal storage is getting full.... which file(s) am I urged to delete and where are they? I am using Wary and Lupu but the answer would be of interest to all Puppians. I think.

Invariably, I get the warning because mhwaveedit does not seem to release memory used by recordings even after they have been saved. Then after the warning the system locks up, I cannot save the work in process. I manually remove the mhwaveedit-temp-xxxxx-xxxx-x files from the hidden directory but the warning persists through normal and fsck reboots. I would rather not do pfix=clean, requiring installation of pets. What's the alternative(s)?

I hope you still have a few bytes to spare. Go and get this http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=271377&sid=bf5c2bfe30cfc4c59bab209b4ffb2d6a and use it to see which folders are full, and delete them. If you really don't have any room to spare, *assuming that you use frugal install on hdd (not thumbdrive)*, open terminal and do this:
Code:
du -sh /initrd/pup_rw/*
and you'll see which folder takes up the most space, and delete them.
Be careful of deleting anything under /lib and /usr.
