I do have a dedicated /home partition of 48GiB, and since today i noticed that the used disk space does not add up to the files inside the partition.
> df -h File system Dim. Usati Dispon. Uso% Montato su /dev/sda3 47G 26G 19G 59% /home
> du -hs /home 17G /home
as also confirmed graphically by Filelight.
I did notice tough that before that the baloo_file process was running quite heavy on disk writes (~150Mb/s), but the indexing database was not inceasing in size (about 9Gb). I did run a purge and now it shows
> balooctl indexSize File Size: 1,11 MiB Used: 1,09 MiB
as of now i’m in a conundrum as i cannot figure out what the missing 11Gib are being used by? I tought some problem with the baloo stuff but i’m unsure as to where it is?
Any suggestions on what I should do or check for this? Possibly a disk check using a live image?
