    debian ext3 allocation error

    OS: Debian etch
    partition type: EXT3

    I was unziping from network 4gb file to my server and server crashed. When I got it back up partition has allocated 4gb of space, but there is no file I cannot reallocate it.
    /dev/hda6 67G 63G 437M 100% /home

    Like you can see above 4gb is allocated but it is not used, so what can i do?

    Thanks

    Also remember the space usage will be invalid if you have anything that's presently holding the file operation , use lsof to check.

    Ok, maybe time to list out your /home directory

    du -h /home --max-depth=1

    48K /home/lost+found
    29G /home/bono
    25G /home/starci
    8.3G /home/www
    16K /home/test
    62G /home

    Hehe looks like this is unsolvable...so maybe only solution would be to format partition.

    Bono, which directory you unzip the file into? I'm sure this can be resolved without a reformat

    It could be reserved space which Linux does by default. Try

    tune2fs -m 0 /dev/hda6
