btrfs free space. It’s complicated. Still.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/09

Everytime a btrfs based volume runs out of space, I’m reminded of these:

There are a few scripts that help you assess quota usage. If you think they are wrong, then you need to btrfs quota rescan / which tells you that it started, but won’t tell when it’s finished (nor wil journalctl -xe a.k.a. journalctl --catalog --pager-end), but dmesg does:

# dmesg | grep qgroup
[ 316.608122] BTRFS info (device sda2): qgroup scan completed (inconsistency flag cleared)

For now I’ve this quick script to start investigation:

~/Versioned/btrfs-du/btrfs-du && df -h | grep "\/$\|^[^\/]" && btrfs quota rescan -s /

It assumes there is quota on the root (enable with btrfs quota enable /) and is based on my fork The df will limit itself to the root (trailing / matched by \/$) or disks not mounted from / (matched by ^[^\/]).

For those looking to share files more quickly, listen up. You can now share with others directly from the Google Drive folder on your Mac or PC. To share a file while inside your Google Drive folder, simply right click the file, select “Google Drive” and then click “Share.” This new feature is rolling out over the next few days.

However, sometimes it fails. And the menu has changed as well.

By now the menu looks like this:

  • “View with Google Drive”
  • “Share using Google Drive”

If those do not appear, then:

Try to stop, then start Google Drive.

If that fails:
