Having a hard time getting free space


#1

Run up against my memory wall on disk, so I removed an entire app, but that didn’t free up any space. I suspect this has to do with the database, though my colleague says that he cleared the database before I removed the app from my workspace. Is this a problem with reallocation versus deletion? If so, is there a way to clear that space?

Did you use apt-get upgrade? if no
You can use du -h -t 50M / to find large files in your workspace see.

Perfect, thanks!
