I got this problem when I try to back up my data from my laptop today. Suddenly, I got not enough space message. FYI, my external Hard disk is Maxtor Personal One Touch 100GB.

So, I checked the hard disk space left.

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ cd /media

taufanlubis@toshiba:/media$ ls

cdrom cdrom0 Maxtor sda1 sda2

taufanlubis@toshiba:/media$ df -h Maxtor/

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sdb1 94G 93G 367M 100% /media/Maxtor

taufanlubis@toshiba:/media$

Then I started deleting few gigabyte of my files to free up the space. I surprised because there was no change in Free Hard disk space (still 367M) at all. After searching for a few minutes with File Browser, finally I found out the problem which is a ‘Trash Bin‘ inside my Maxtor.

I though the Trash Bin is only one. Is it the default of Ubuntu? Don’t know yet.

I haven’t looking for the answer. Next time, may be.

Well, then I opened the .Trash-taufanlubis (trash bin directory), delete all the files inside.

Check the result.

taufanlubis@toshiba:/media$ df -h Maxtor/

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sdb1 94G 61G 33G 66% /media/Maxtor

taufanlubis@toshiba:/media$

I got my space back.
