hey guys! I really need your help!
Over the last couple of days I noticed, that even though I am deleting old documents, videos, etc. from my ssd, the available disk space shown in Files, stacer and DoubleCommander kept the same.
I deleted via DoubleCommander and also via Files - makes no difference
No I’ve reached the 1GB notice and I don’t know what to do!
thank you in advance, I really appreciate your help!
in case it helps: running manjaro gnome 43.1 with the latest updates on a Dell Lattitude 7390 with 1TB SSD using btrfs (encrypted)
I’m make a wild guess here, so it could easily be wrong. You said you’re using BTRFS, are you using timeshift or some other tool to make snapshots? If so you might need to remove a few snapshots to actually free up that space.
I’ll use timeshift as the example because that’s what I use. In timeshift’s main window there is a column titled “unshared”, that’s how much unique space that snapshot uses. Usually it’ll be the oldest snapshots that use the most space. If you delete a snapshot it SHOULD free up that unshared disk space for use.
no changes - but I used stacer to clean up my system upfront.
I can tell it is not an issue of to many data but a problem that moved data to another device or deleted data is not freed
sorry, I am running manjaro now for a year and I’m still learning a lot

When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, before AND after the pasted text. Like this:
This will just cause it to be rendered like this:
eget nisl elit id
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.
Instead of like this:
Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.
Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.
Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.
For more information, please see:
Also, if your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:
This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.
There is definately something off with your file system
I don’t know what. Compare your df output with mine
$ df --human-readable /
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/nvme0n1p2 468G 39G 429G 9% /
Perhaps you think you have moved the data - from one folder to another - but what if the destination was not mounted as you thought - then the data is still on the original device - not on the device partition your thought you copied the data to.
It is easy to confuse yourself - as Linux does not use the term drives but mounts …
~ du --human-readable --max-depth=1 /home/ ✔
sorry, I mounted the external drive there
after umnounting it, it looks like the last one
