Flash Drive 80+% full

Recommended Posts

I have not noticed until now, but my USB flash drive that unraid is running on is now over 80 percent full. How can I determine what is filling up the drive, and how can I "clean" the usb drive to have as little data as needed on it?


Should i provide logs or?

Just explore the flash drive via the network (flash share).  OTOH you're probably going to be seeing a whack in the logs folder (safe to delete)



I wrote a script to remove the extra files i had dumped to it. But somehow now i am no longer able to access the unraid gui. I tried to run a "diagnostics" from the terminal, but got the below error. Sounds like its time to recreate my flash drive from a backup?

Gotcha, I will try that. I was also running a parity check x12 TB with about 2-3 hours left. All my other dockers and notifications are working, do you think I am safe to wait a few hours to see if the parity check completes before i reboot?

Rebooting fixed the issue in the short term, but after waking up this morning im in the same boat. Any long term solution here?




EDIT: I was able to reboot through putty (took about 20 minutes), and get diagnostics, attached here.
