lost my folders

Post by tcpip » 2018/01/11 14:35:48

HI all,

I have my centos server and was getting this error "cd rpm-bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device"
after I rebooted the server, i lost the folders inside the /home directory.


Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

If you have a separate /home partition then it may not be mounted.
Can you post the output from these two commands (the second run as root):
df
fdisk -l

So your root partition is still 100% full and you do have a separate /home partition and it is mounted. Did you accidentally create the file under /home when the /home filesystem was not mounted? In which case they are there but hidden by the existing /home mount - umount it and see if the files exist under /home then. If they do, move them somewhere else then remount /home and copy them back.

Hello TrevorH,

I did not create and other file/folder , so please let me understand this, I will have to do an unmount /home and see if with that I can find the missing folders?

Thanks in advance.
