Perhaps this is an inode problem ?
I just tried regressing a file, and i got another "error 28 no space left on disk"
However the disk has 288gb space free
Did a little googling and found suggestions that inodes can cause a problem if there are lots of small files, well I have set no delete older than limits on my backups, and so with infinite backup increments for 5 busy workstations, perhaps this is the problem ?
I've just run $ tune2fs -l /dev/hda1 | grep Inode
Inode count: 30334976
Inodes per group: 8192
Inode blocks per group: 512
Inode size: 256
I'm still researching inodes, (don't know what they are at this stage) does my mount look excessive ?
