DOROOT file has used my whole drive
my droplet has only two small sites on it, that total less than 100mb in hard drive space, but the full 20gb hard drive has been used. I’ve checked the log files, but they are not taking up much space.
I managed to trace the disk usage to a single file: /dev/disk/by-label/DOROOT, which I am unable to delete
It occurred to me that DOROOT might be ‘Digital Ocean Root’, so perhaps its something to do with the droplet management?
I tried to read the file but it seems to either be encrypted or the Digital Ocean console is unable to read it. I managed to read the tail of the file which seems to be full of error reports
I am unable to delete the file, and ssh is buggy since the hard drive filled up so I’m having to do everything thru the DO console which is a bit of a pain as you can’t paste passwords into it
