I have ~1.65TB of Data, but xpenology show 2.94 used

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out why when I transferred about 1.65TB of data onto my newly built xpenology N40L box, it shows that I already used up 2.94TB of data, where did the 1.3TB of data go? I am a bit confused.

 

Any help greatly appreciated

 

I have 6 x 2TB on SHR2, so I have about 7.36TB total storage.

Did enable recycle.bin and deleted some files? You can try to empty recycle.bin.

How big the majority of your files? Larger files (Music/video/photos) or a lot of very small ones?

I emptied all the recycle bins, there weren't really anything in it, I have a pretty good mix of large and small files, but the majority is probably slightly on the bigger side.

Try from the SSH shell issue the command: df (disk free). It should give you the real usage. Maybe monitor doesn't reflect correct usage?

This is what is listed when I do df.

 

Any ideas?

Check if any share on volume1, including homes, etc., has a "@eaDir" folder. Those are the "recycle bin" folders, removing them should free up the space :wink:

Any tips on the commands I can use to browse the size of the folders? Been google and haven't found an answer. My knowledge is limited of command line linux. It was amazing that I was able to figure out how to disable the APM on my only Seagate ST2000DM001 in the box using VI.

 

I am at a complete lost how to browse and figure out the directory sizes of each directory, any help appreciated.

Have you tried "du".

 

Usage: du [-aHLdclsxhmk] [FILE]...

Summarize disk space used for each FILE and/or directory.
Disk space is printed in units of 1024 bytes.

Options:
       -a      Show file sizes too
       -L      Follow all symlinks
       -H      Follow symlinks on command line
       -d N    Limit output to directories (and files with -a) of depth < N
       -c      Show grand total
       -l      Count sizes many times if hard linked
       -s      Display only a total for each argument
       -x      Skip directories on different filesystems
       -h      Sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 243M 2G )
       -m      Sizes in megabytes
       -k      Sizes in kilobytes (default)

thanks for the help with the du command.

 

It looks like I have 1.4TB in the /@sync/repo folder, any idea what that is for?

 

Can I clear the contents of this folder with out issues?

Thanks! That worked...Uninstalled cloudstation and everything is back to normal. Eeeks I guess it's a cloudstation issue.

 

It would've helped a lot if you told us about CloudStation in the beginning :wink:

By default, CloudStation acts like a really dumb version control system - it makes several backups, taking up precious space. I'd suggest you should use owncloud in the future if you want a cloud-like experience.
