hard disk: avail 0 capacity 100% is it fine to use it like this?
in my new drive (for wich http://www.daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=3422) I've made a special partition for a huge file I want to keep by itself and mount ro to avoid stupid mistakes and loose a 100G file with a "rm *" ).
I probably did some miscalculation, and the size is very tight. Windows copied the big file fine, and then complained there was no space left and did not put in there a 3+ M file. I compressed the file, which went down to < 1M and it could be copied.
Now I have this with df:
/dev/sd0i 100G 95.1G 0B 100%
But is it fine to run a partition full like this or does it need some free space to work properly? (I remember Windows claiming something like 15% free space to do defragmenting, if I'm right you don't need that on unix, but maybe there something I don't know) (oh well, there's a lot I don't know).
