We ran this disk usage command line tool in both the root ~/ folder and in the ~/workspace folder.
du -a -h --max-depth=1 | sort -hr
The root folder is reporting 671M in use, of which 249M is in use in the workspace. However the workspace size reporter is showing a useage of 1017M/1024.
We have re-cloned the repo every time this happens, but inevitably after a few days of use, the disk will fill up again for what seems to be no reason.
Our usual go-to to resolve this issue is to delete and re-clone the box… then slowly watch it fill up again as we work. We suspect it may have something to do with a cache somewhere that is responsible for version controlling. Our app generates a great deal of files (most of which are deleted after creation) so if these temporary files are being cached somewhere it may account for some of the lost memory?
