Card full when it shouldn't be help

Sun Jul 29, 2012 10:57 pm

Hi my wheezy install full even though it is an 8gb card. I have obviously expanded the partition. I have downloaded several large video files then deleted them, moving them to the rubbish folder.

When I try to delete the files in the rubbish folder it says they don't exist! Why?

I can't understand where all the space has gone as I have little program's installed. Can anyone give me some tips?

Did my reply to your duplicate of this post not work? Here it is if you didn't see it:

open a terminal and type:

Code: Select all

rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/files/*

portets is referring to one of the several posts you have made on this same topic:

Stop cross posting / spamming please Snipez. People are much more inclined to help if you make a single request for help giving full details of your problem and setup, what remedies you have already tried etc
