i have a 4gb norns model. calculating the we folder size using cyberduck says the total is 805 mb. pressing k2 on the norns main screen shows 260 mb remaining. i noticed when using norns the other day that the available recording time on the tape kept dwindling down pretty rapidly even though i wasn’t doing/recording anything. i’m noticing this after updating to version 220321. before the update i had a lot more free space and didn’t see the available recording time going down inexplicably.
i tried expanding the filesystem by connected to the norns via the terminal and ssh, but that didn’t change anything. i also tried resetting the norns and that didn’t help either. i tried to update to see if there was a new version but i can’t because it says i need 400 mb and it only sees the 260.
am i missing something obvious?
There was a similar-sounding issue here.
tl;dr the issue was a mysterious audio file that was quite large. You may want to have a look at your tapes folder (and/or the audio folder/sub-folders) to see if there’s anything in there that you’ve forgotten about.
there’s a post in the link you shared that says that a 4gb norns should have 1gb left after a clean install, which would fall roughly in line with what i have left. maybe the system files are just taking up more space than they used to or i didn’t notice before. maybe this isn’t an issue.
thanks for the link!
this might be a logging overflow bug. try (via ssh or screen)
sudo du -h /var/log
here’s the output from that command. seems like there are several pretty large files. is that normal?
you can safely do
sudo rm -rf /var/log/journal
we need to figure out why there is some superfluous logging happening
