how much space left on drives?
on Jun 22, 2009 at 1:54:11 pm

hi there,

i'm just wondering how i know how much space there is left available for capturing etc. i'm probably looking straight through it, but i can't seem to find it anywhere or find it in the manual.

i've just started getting this error message on conforming EDLs that there is insufficent space. but i don't have that much on the system.

is this message referring to general disk space or somehow space allocated to specific projects or something like that?

cheers

Just go into the library...
at the bottom above the tool nodes, it will tell you how much space is left.

I've been told that a more accurate method is "sw df" in a terminal window. FWIW.

It is a more accurate way, but it does not tell you how much space you have at the resolution you are working out. It will only tell you have much memory is free. Also, using the app. will tell you how much the system thinks it has and can verify if you need to force purge, which can all be done the in smoke now, in fact the smoke will now tell you how much storage each project has used. This assumes you are using the current linux.
