We are in the process of migrating this forum. A new space will be available soon. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Just checking hard drive question as well

You can use

Code:
parted -l
To get a better view and just check with

Code:
mount
to see if /dev/sda is mounted anywhere, if not just create a folder to mount to and mount it.

Code:
mkdir /mnt/sda1
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
Can also use following to get a view of disk usage

Code:
df -h

df -h

fdisk -l doesn't tell us **** aside from the physical sizes of the array.

you've given us no information, so we can only assume that you're attempting to do all of this work on the 10gb array for / and not on /home.

Never had this problem before I have uploaded about 4 gigs of data to my server but getting ran out of space errors on ftp or when backing up stuff to zip to download.

I understand 10 gbs is in raid etc but how do I access the rest of the space for data that can be thrown away and not a risk if hard drive fails.
This is the error I get when trying to zip my server to keep as my back up

zip I/O error: No space left on device
zip error: Output file write failure (write error on zip file)

Is their a directory where I can acess the rest of my drive I know that wont be part of my raid syncing or is their an easy way without data loss and hole system reinstallation to extend the 10 gb partition to 20 gb

here is my fdisk layout

root@ns3365201: fdisk -l
