Every time I use Octoprint it seems to fill the disk by a lot more than the size of the file I upload.


How do I reduce the size of mmcblk0p1  or do a clean up?

You need to figure out where so many files been written, it will give clues.

I suggest to run something like the following to see where is the biggest directory that get filled and look at all the reported sizes :

find / -type d -exec du -s {} \;

I ran that but just kept listing hundreds of directories too many for Putty. Is there anyway of sorting by size


EDIT: Solved I looked up the DU command and was able to navigate to motion directory to discover 1000's of jpegs. I didn't realise i was recording.

 du -sk .[!.]* *| sort -n

du -h -d 1 / | grep '[0-9]\+G'




Thanks for your help
