Creating a big file results in all data loss


I met a problem when I tar a large directory to a .tar file which makes my total storage exceeds my disk space quota. Then, the tragedy happens, all my data are lost and only the directory workspace exists. I don’t know whether this is a bug or not, and it seems that C9 initializes my space into a original state where all my data are removed.


In which workspace did this happen?
most likely your files are not shown because ide is unable to connect.


All my files in /home/ubuntu are lost, only a empty directory /home/ubuntu/workspace exists. I guess IDE is connected successfully since I can perform shell commands (such as ls, cd) normally.
