I have been running my rsync routine on a crontab process for the past couple of months but today I received an error related to lack of space in my root directory. As explained in the title, I have set up a fstab ip file system configuration onto my root specifically onto /mnt and have been running the following code
`0 16-22 * * 6 sudo rsync -avzpEo --delete-delay /home/ /mnt/Rsync_Dell/`
Today, however, I have received the error that my partition was full to the point I could not run anything anymore (used live media to purge files) and found out that my mnt directory was full and clogged my root partition.
My question is how is it possible that I clogged my system if the rsync is sending files to my server? how can I prevent that? should I change the delete-delay to delete-during?
The space dedicated to root is 40 GB whereas the home is 150 GB and the destination server is 750 GB.
