trash-put to trash files from command line. Recently, I had aliased my
rm command to
trash-put so that I don't accidentally delete something important.
However, what happened now was that I had to delete some files from my
/var/log folder to free up some space on the
/ filesystem. I did this using
sudo rm /var/log/somelog #Above command is equivalent to: sudo trash-put /var/log/somelog
After doing this, there was no free space recovered on the partition since the files must have moved to some trash-can. However, when I checked my trash-can there were no files. I tried to see if there was
.Trash-100 folder on the
/ partition, but even that was not there.
So, where did my trashed file go? And how do I find it so that I can decimate it to recover some space?
