Run out of disk space, but disk is not full

Hi. I have a new installation of nextcloud in a VM with Ubuntu 20.
At the moment there are only four users and inside we insert some documents and some files for a total of 20 gigabytes.
In the SDA3 disk I found this situation :

sda3

Mount: /
Filesystem: ext4
Dimensione: 370.84 GB
Disponibile: 39.62 GB
Utilizzati: 90%

looking inside the disk I can’t find large files or folders.
Do you have any suggestions on how to find who occupies almost all the disk space?

Thanks.

Andrea

df -h

In your case check underlying disk space.
Also, check disk space allocated to your user accounts under admin settings. Most likely they have a space limit assigned of 20gb, which you can change.

Hi.
I mount a shared folder for veeam backup and I think in the gui of nextcloud the report isn’t correct.

In my account I haven’t the limit assigned.

Thanks

Hi.
I can’t find these settings that you are recommending to me.
I only see the space limits to the folders I’m going to create but I can’t find the disk space limits.

Check under Users in admin panel.
If still confused try admin documentation, Google or search forum. Easy enough to find.

Inside the user panel I find the settings item where I find the setting: default quota. It is set to unlimited.
My problem, however, is related to the space shown in the system page as shown in the photo above …

I’m not sure. Try https://cloud.nextcloud.com/call/xs25tz5y

Can you try running this command:

df -TPk | grep -wv 'overlay\|tmpfs\|devtmpfs\|squashfs'

I believe this is roughly what the monitor app is doing to get the disk info

I have this :slight_smile:

root@vmi655047:~# df -TPk | grep -wv ‘overlay|tmpfs|devtmpfs|squashfs’
Filesystem Type 1024-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on

But in the / folder I can’t find the folder or file that use this space.
