When I run "df -h", I get:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 2.5G 12K 2.5G 1% /dev tmpfs 509M 896K 508M 1% /run /dev/sda1 38G 33G 2.5G 94% / none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none 2.5G 84K 2.5G 1% /run/shm none 100M 24K 100M 1% /run/user none 298G 206G 93G 69% /media/sf_share
On /dev/sda1, the difference between size and used is 5G, but available is only 2.5G.
I just deleted a lot of files, but when I filled it up to 100%, I went into GParted and I could see that /dev/sda1 still had white space for this partition.
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda results in:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 79249407 39623680 83 Linux /dev/sda2 79249408 90111999 5431296 5 Extended /dev/sda5 79251456 90111999 5430272 82 Linux swap / Solaris
sudo resize2fs /dev/sda1 gives me:
resize2fs 1.42.9 (4-Feb-2014) The filesystem is already 9905920 blocks long. Nothing to do!
