Post Re: no space left problem when writing to USB NTFS drive
another thing I did not know about until now ...

after apt-get install attr I receive

system.ntfs_attrib=0x10080000

I checked the other dirs and on all of them I receive a "plain" 0x10000000 - so that will be the reason.
Windows file manager of course does not show me the familair blue for compression, since it is on a remote drive. Otherwise I might have notified the difference in behaviour.
And if I uncompress it, I certainly will run into "disk full".
So I will have to make up some alternative strategy:
be it "clean up and expand", "get another drive", or -today the most probable, because solveable from remote- move this backup job from Windows into Ubuntu's "rsync" ...

Thank you for your helping
and happy holidays
Michael

Hi,

If you just remove the compression flag, this will not uncompress anything. The compression flag is only used when creating a new file.

Note : you may compress another directory to save space. The freed space is however likely to be fragmented, and cause bad access times.

Regards

Thanks for the explanation.
To compress the other directories will not gain space - they do contain very big files (Acronis images, .vmdk files).

Thanks again
Michael
