[Solved] Omega storage full
If someone could help me find a solution that would be great.
For some unknown reason, the storage is completely full on my Omega. I've only installed nodejs a few days ago and I don't believe it to be an issue, since this has only come up today. I was wondering how we go about wiping everything that's unnecessary.
It seems like factory reset doesn't really do anything to help.
I'm on the latest firmware - 0.0.6 b275.
@Evan-Cooper Difficult to give any definitive answer to your issue.
The Omega standardly has only 16MB of disk space (though you can increase this with a USB memory stick - see https://wiki.onion.io/Tutorials/Using-USB-Storage and https://wiki.onion.io/Tutorials/Using-USB-Storage-as-Rootfs - I do this with a 32GB USB device)
Things that can end up consuming the disk space are:
- Installing too many packages using opkg - note that you can remove any packages you don't need using opkg remove <package-name>
- Any frequently/continuously run program that writes and appends to a log file etc.
- Any additional files you have copied to your Omega
Useful commands to help track down what is using disk space:
- df - gives a summary of free and used space on mounted devices
- du -a -h <directory-name> gives a list of the space used by all files and directories within the given <directory-name>
Thanks @Kit-Bishop for the quick reply and the helpful hints.
Uninstalling and re-installing nodejs seemed to fix the issue - I had done this before but this time was different for some reason.
