How to free up Diskspace?


#1

Hi!

I had many rails projects on Cloud9, and got close to reaching the limit of the free diskspace. After saving I started deleting all the projects except for the 2 I’m currently working on. The problem is that after deleting the files the diskspace didn’t increase and soon I will be unable to save my current work.
How can free up the diskspace?


#2

try running these commands and then send the output

cd /home/ubuntu
du -sch .[!.]* *

This is the output

4.0K .bash_aliases
4.0K .bash_history
4.0K .bash_logout
4.0K .bashrc

cd into .local and run the same command, that directory is abnormally larger :confused:

cd ~/.local/share
du -sch .[!.]* *

also, have you installed any additional package inside your workspace?

The output is this.

du: cannot access ‘.[!.]*’: No such file or directory

I have deployed the rails apps I created to Heroku.
