Puredisk... How to clear the space

Level 3

Hi all,

Storage space utilisation is reached 98%. I have deleted one of the client to free up some space. But even after deleting the client i am not able to reclaim some space. I can see the deleted client in data mining report with the detailed space utilisation.
Is there anything more i have to do after deleting client to regain the free space... Please suggest, i m really in trouble.

Your retention must be too high for the amount of storage. You either need to present more storage to your server, reduce the time on disk.

Also go to "cd /Storage"

run "du * -hs"

output should be something like

[Servername]:/Storage # du * -hs
400K    FSsync
4.8T    data
188G    databases
592K    etc
8.8G    history
72K     home_dirs
2.2G    log
0       lost+found
29M     oldtemp
0       patches
0       patchinfo
0       processed
93M     queue
17M     spool
447M    tmp
3.8G    var
0       vfs

From this you can see 4.8TB is in the data folder. If your tmp folder is rather large you might be able to remove some items.

also run "/opt/pdcr/bin/crcontrol --dsstat"

Output is

[Servername]:/Storage # /opt/pdcr/bin/crcontrol --dsstat
