sudden surge in disk usage

By naturale02 ·
Hi All:

I notice one of the server disk space have been drop to 6%, but I could not find any file or data that take up the space. 1 hour later, the harddisk space sore up to optimum level.

How could I check does any application or any execute command running on backend that temporary consume the disk space?

Many thanks..

Make sure that you are looking at all files (including hidden and system files)... there might be something hidden. Double check where your log files are being written to. Check your server for open files - specifically if there is one on that drive... it may give you a hint.

Hope you can figure this out.
