I am using PClinuxOS 2009.6 with Thunderbird, Mozilla Firefox and KDE. I have 2 Volumes, mounted on / with 2.4 GB and one mounted on /usr with the size 4.3 GB.
The smaller one is filled to 100% with, in particular, mail - I just learned that I should have Compacted regularly.
The funny thing is that when I removed a Folders from the disk (in the order of 10 Mb), there is no change in the situation with respect to the amount Free: it will show 0% out of 2.4GB. My question is 1) How can this be, and 2) What can I do to improve the situation?
I am the only user of the system and I did not tick the box which shows: only the owner can remove/delete folders and files. THanks for your help!
