How to free up disk space?

Posted May 12th, 2019    1123   0  

I keep getting the "disk is full" message even though I'm deleting torrents and their data on RuTorrent, I'm not sure what else needs to be done and the WebUI isn't refreshing to say it's deleted.

You can log in using ssh client(example putty) and remove data using terminal.
You will need 3 commands to move inside ssh.
and for deleting rm -rf /folderpath

Here is example script which can be used to delete all data that is older than 60 days.

Open putty connection.
nano delete_old.sh

Paste this in it(change paths to correct ones):

close and save pressing ctrl + x and select yes.

chmod +x delete_old.sh

After this you can run this whenever you want with just writing ./delete_old.sh or you can even add this as cron job to run automatically every night.


I had the exact same issue. I started deleting the files through FileZilla and it works perfectly.


I do through seedbucket and it works perfectly but it need sometime to see disk bar updated.
