SD card full but I download files in a external HD

Postby magorrias » Fri Jan 30, 2015 7:14 pm

Hi,

in the first place I have to say I'm a noob and my English is not very good

Raspberry Pi & Raspbmc
transmission is downloading the files in these folders which they are in a external hard drive:
/media/Series/[descargas]/incompletas
/media/Series/[descargas]/completas

This works perfectly (incomplete and complete files are correctly in their folders)
but at the same time the SD card is filling (with I don't know what)
and when it's completely full I have the next error:
error: unable to save resume file. No space left on device
and transmission stops downloading

1. How can I delete all the downloaded garbage in the SD?
2. How can I solve this issue?

Before the download starts, /dev/mmcblk0p9 was at 80%:

/dev/sdb1

Check that mount point to see if it contains extra (hidden?) entries with a numerical extension like 'media-1' and delete. You may have an external drive (which is almost full too) becoming unmounted while Transmission is running.

External drive is 40gb free
and it doesn't stop downloading at any time (until SD card is full, of course)
