WD My cloud 4 TO: No space left on the disk (Transmission)

Dear all,

I am using Transmission on my Wd My CLOUD 4 TO… However, since a few days, I ve noticed a recurrent issue:

-Despite the fact that I still have, at least, 3 TO available on the storage, some of my downloads dont reach 100% (instead 99,95% e.g.) and it says “No space left on the disk” as illustrated below:

Do you know how I can fix it ? What is annoying me (and it’s really frustrating) is the fact that it stops always when it’s getting closer to 100%

Yeah, you’re pointing downloads to the ROOT partition.   Don’t do that.

What’s wrong with it ?

Do a “df /root” and you’ll find out how much space is available on the partition the “/root” folder resides on which will answer why it may not be wise to use the “/root/Drivers/” folder or any other location on the partition the root folder is located as a download folder.

The real question is; why are you downloading to the “/root/Drivers” folder and not “/DataVolume/shares/Public/Transmission” or some other “/DataVolume/shares/” folder?

Hello,

First of all, thank your for your answer. You are totally right, when I check df/root I dont have any space left available.

The reason behind your question is quite simple: I “just” followed this link to install transmission:

It might sound a bit silly but what’s the différence between “root/Downloads” and “DataVolume/shares/Public/Transmission/Downloads” ? Is it possible to change manually the space allowed to this partition ? Or what’s the best way to fix my problem ? I would like to keep some files available for download (and if I change the directory, the tracker will not find them anymore, right ?)

I changed the path to “/DataVolume/shares/Public/Transmission/Downloads” but I still have the error message

Did you delete the stuff on /root that you previously downloaded?

Remember that, unlike a computer, the MyCloud NAS isn’t a simple Linux box; it’s a NAS implemented using firmware running on a linux system on one (fairly small) partition, which stores user data on a separate (much larger) partition.

If you download material to the linux system partition, you’ll soon run out of space on the partition, as you have found.

Not only that, but when the firmware is upgraded, your downloaded material is likely to be wiped.

hello

How do i delete the files that were download to root/downloads accidently?

And do i change the destination folder in transmission?

thanks

If you follow that link to install transmission, the download path will not be /root/, but /shares/Public/Transmission/Downloads/. Unless you’ve changed them manually or had any changes prior. I know because I set it up that way (-:
