> Cacko Incorrectly Says /hdd3 Is Full, but Windows reports free space correctly

When I plug my SL-C3200 running Cacko full into my Windows XP machine via USB, with PC Link Mode setting to Storage - Internal HDD, Windows Explorer says that there is 580MB free.

However, Cacko thinks it is full, my df line for /hdd3 reads:-

/dev/hda 35968284 5935472 32812 99% /hdd3

There has always been a difference between what Cacko and Windows reports but it has become a problem now as I cannot create a swap file even though I know there is space available.

Also, I am trying to bluetooth a file from my phone to the Zaurus and cannot as the Zaurus believes the disk drive is full.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

it is a bad idea to completely fill up the disk on any type of filesystems. some space is needed for housekeeping, ie journalling or keeping references/links for defragmentation, and if you got no space, there is no way for your filesystem to stay unfragmented...
