I've got a 256mb SD card (Sandisk) in my Z. I've been using it for about 2 years (tops), and it was 71mb free. Suddenly yesterday my Z has started to complain that there's no space left on the device when I try to scp files over to the card.
I've tried writing a file in vi (with contents of course) only to find out that I can't write these files to disk. I can touch files, but not add content. There's tonnes of space available on / (1 meg or so), so that's not the issue.
Is this a card failure thing? Is there something I'm missing? I've got an SL-5000d with OZ 3.3.5.

# cd /mnt/card
to see which directory is taking up all of the space.
Perhaps run fsck on it...?

The du is reporting the way I want to, in that nothing unexpected/untowards is happening. However, I haven't fscked the card in ages/ever. Maybe it's time. I guess I'll unmount it and everything. Very scary.

There have been some reports of Z's mounting the SD cards as read only after a reboot or a suspend. It hasn't happened to me, but that is also something you might want to check.

I've fscked the sd card, and I guess we'll just wait to see what will happen. Thanks for the idea.
