Default Root filesystem full; faubackup problem?

Hash: SHA1


My headless home file server (running stable, 2.6.26-2-686) suddenly
developed a "No space left on device" error in the / root directory. df
reports /dev/hda1 (root directory) to be full; this is a 60GB disc. du
- -ch however reports that there is a total of 11GB of data on the disc,
virtually all of which is a directory called /backup which I believe
faubackup created. The /var/log directory is normal in size.

The only thing that I have altered lately is an entry in crontab:

10 05 * * 1 /usr/sbin/faubackup /documents /maxtor/

has changed to:

10 05 * * 1 /usr/sbin/faubackup --clean /documents /maxtor/

Would it be possible that the links that faubackup create have made the
system believe / is full? Or is my hard drive developing a fault?

I have fsck'ed /dev/hda1 and apt-get cleaned. I tried smartctl which
didn't reveal anything.

Here is my /etc/fstab:

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /documents ext3 rw,users,exec 0 2
/dev/sda1 /maxtor ntfs-3g defaults

If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful.

Thanks, Tim
