No it's not full.
/dev/sde5 1922853680 62896064 1762282252 4%

/dev/sde5:
multcount = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
geometry = 243200/255/63, sectors = 3907014656, start = 4096

File sizes are fairly large. Theyre classical music flac files of fixed
size. I add maybe 4 or 5 new files a week on average.

Okay. I have similar drives, similar usage, and I've never seen this.
I have no idea....

Good luck.

Thanks. Yes it was an interesting read. I suppose the message is that the
problem is being worked on but not to hold one's breath. Since I'm not
actually experiencing any obvious problems even at 22.0%, I guess I'll just
sit back and wait.
