My server disk on Ubuntu is full, but I see I have a lot of space in tmpfs. So I want mount tmpfs to /dev/root:

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root       189G  175G  5.0G  98% /
devtmpfs        5.9G     0  5.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           5.9G     0  5.9G   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs           5.9G  610M  5.3G  11% /run
tmpfs           5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
tmpfs           5.9G     0  5.9G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs           1.2G     0  1.2G   0% /run/user/1000
  • First you should know, what tmpfs is and the fact, that everything in tmpfs will be lost on reboot. – BlueManCZ Jul 13 '17 at 8:25

Your tempfs is in memory, not on disk.

To free up disk space on your root partition, try an application like baobab or filelight.
