No free space, even after deleting stuff and emtyping trash

I’m not sure what’s going on, 0B free even tho i deleted hundreds of gigs and then emptied the trash bin.
Dolphin says i have nothing free but filelight says i have 372.6 gigs free

Are you sure both are checking the same filesystem?
Please provide output of

$ df -Th

sometimes when i try rebooting it says cancelled by (any number of programs, one time it’s nixnote, the next it’s whatever else, it’s lways something) and after i try reboot from the menu a second time it works but then i see text in the upper corner of the tty or whatever the text is called when shutting down and it’s mentions something about watchdog failed to stop and failed to unmount the partition, also some journal cleanup text i think.

another thing, i have a folder called timeshift, this is from my old Linux Mint installation and currently timeshift in manjaro is not setup to use it so i want to delete it but it , dolphin, won’t allow it.

i see i have a folder called .Trash-1000 (cool name), it’s got everything I’ve tried deleting inside of it.

That’s badly formatted, please use the three backticks or </> button next time.

/dev/sda1 has no space left - at least no space accessible for your current user premier69.
It is probably reserved for root. If you do not need reserved space for root and want to get your hands on it, reduce the reserved space:

$ sudo tune2fs -r 0 /dev/sda1
[sudo] password for premier69: 
tune2fs 1.46.2 (28-Feb-2021)
Setting reserved blocks count to 0
[premier69@premier69-PC ~]$ 

beyond that suggestion, should i also do this in the terminal?
sudo rm -rf /8TB/.Trash-1000 and again for sudo rm -rf /8TB/timeshift

Adjusting the reserved blocks should have given you access to plenty of space.

Sure, if you do not need anything in that trash.

That folders name sounds like you’re using it as a timeshift (hint: backup) location…
Again - if you do not need it then it can be removed. Only you are in a position to judge what is and is not needed.

I’m marking this as answered, Thank You! i will delete timeshift because it was a leftover from my linux mint installation previously, i have not yet setup timeshift in manjaro since i forgot.
