Remove hidden core dump files to restore drive space
Authored by: glowurm on Oct 03, '03 01:03:34PM

One file, hidden (named with . previous to characters) and less than 4K in size. Good spot to watch, and investigate for missing space, but not applicable here.

Personally, my big drive-eater is all the legacy apps and OS versions I've been maintaining on my system until recently. Three partitions on my OEM drive ate up 10 GB of space for old proggies and systems. I've recently used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone those to disc images on my new Maxtor (for back-up purposes, in case I actually need something) and re-formatted the whole thing.

<sarcasm>That gave me lots of space back.</sarcasm>

<brag>Now I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with the 30 GB of space free on my OEM drive. I've got that in addition to ~40 GB free space on my new Maxtor, and am sure I'll fill it up soon but *hate* to think of that much junk. And it's always junk.</brag>
