    Default USB Drive full?

    Hey guys

    For a longer period of time Ive been running BT4 B off a usb drive.

    The partition is as following:

    Base - 2 GB (1.1 still free)
    Changes - 6 GB (0 Free)

    The only installs that Ive done are

    Nvidia GFX drivers
    Nessus
    Kmess
    Metasploit FW 3.2
    A few *LARGE* driver packs

    This has been running great but a couple of days ago I noticed a decrease in performance and now I cant even launch KDE because of lack of disk space.

    Ive mentioned that Im a linux n00b and because of it Ive already formatted my changes partition several times before finally getting the hang of things properly.

    At the moment the only alternative I have is to copy hordes of logs and scripts, reformatting, copying back and reinstalling everything - which easily results in atleast a couple of days of nonsense...

    Id be very appreciative for advice on the matter, thanks.

    *Edit - Sorry I should probably mention that I dont understand how its possible for the entire 6 GB to be consumed...

    man df

    I was going to post links but the forum does not allow it for < 15 post members.
