In the general case, you can't increase your inode limit without reformatting. ReiserFS doesn't use inodes. Don't use ReiserFS... it's as dead as Mrs. Reiser... though I suppose she'd probably prefer Mrs. Sharanova, considering.

This is a classic case of trying to solve a people problem with a technical solution. Is it possible? Not as standard, no. Is there a workaround? Almost certainly, you could run a script or service to monitor the folder and rename things. Should you? In my opinion, no. Any attempt to come up with some hacky solution will only lead to excruciating pain ...

Look for recently modified files by using the command below. It will show the files modified during the last ten minutes inside FOLDER. Increase the -mmin -10 parameter to see how the FOLDER was modified through time. See man find and look for -mtime and -mmin for full details: sudo find FOLDER -xdev -type f -mmin -10 -ls Another situation is when deleted ...

Get-Process won't get you anywhere. Assign the Count to a variable and test if the value of that variable is then 13: $cabFileCount = (Get-ChildItem -Filter "*.cab" "C:\path\to\folder").Count Write-Host$cabFileCount if($cabFileCount -eq 13){ # Success! Write-Host "$cabFileCount files found, perfect!" } else { # Failure! Write-Host ...

dm-cache wasn't merged until 3.9 and bcache wasn't merged until 3.10. EnhanceIO is a fork of flashcache which some optimizations that also is available on 3.10. There have been a lot of advancements since 2.6.32 in the kernel and there aren't any backports for these features in the RHEL6 kernel which OpenVZ is based off of. OpenVZ will be releasing a beta ...

You could run Sysinternals Process Monitor which allows monitoring file system, registry and process/thread activity in real-time. You can also set filters that allows you to monitor just the installer, which helps to rule out changes made by other processes. Of course it doesn't track previous changes, so you have to run it during the installation. The ...

It effectively writes zeroes to all empty space on the volume; this allows for better compression of the physical file containing the virtual disk.

I've often seen this when client machines have Offline Files enabled for a given share. Same user, same share, different files on different machines.

Darn. It was a different userid afterall. My Windows admin gave me bad info because she had confused herself with different client accounts.

Well, your biggest problem is that you didn't mount the image via a loop before running mkfs, which you probably meant to do (e.g. losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/loop.img followed by mkfs.ext4 /dev/loop0) But, as to the shrinkage and why the numbers change, the 1.2M is actual file use; the 10M is disk allocation. That's saying "you have granted loop.img 10M on ...

Is there anything preventing you from changing where your secondary disk mounts? I would unmount it, then mount it at a new point such as /newpointpoint then make sure /var still exists on your disk mounted at /. At that point you can just move everything from /newmountpoint/ to /var/.

You can try iotop tool which shows you I/O usage by processes (in other words, which top processes are using your disk), so you can track which process is responsible for eating the space. Another way is to use inotify (part of inotify-tools) which can monitor directories for changes. Or simple way is to use du in the following way. Define the following ...
