SD Card reporting full...when not.

Everything was fine. I was installing games to my SD card via steam when it all of a sudden reported I was out of room even though there were 700Gb free a second before. I rebooted the device and now it shows that 700Gb is of type "other" I checked the file system and there is only 300 used(it's a 1Tb card). Did my card just become corrupt? do I need format it? is it dead?

I don't know if this is a fedora thing or what but I moved one of the games in prep for reformatting and now it's detecting fine again...I'm installing stuff. will see if it works appears fine now. Anyone ever have that happen? SD card shows full and then..just doesn't anymore?

i got this exact problem too! could you explain a bit better how you managed to fix this?

I wish that I could. I went to settings in game mode and started moving things OFF of the SD card in prep to reformat it. I moved one thing, switched to desktop mode to so I could move more files at once and noticed that the problem went away. I assume it means the SD card will die soon but so far it appears to be ok again.

i mean, my sd card is fresh new, only 3 month of use. i have no steam games installed on it. kde partition manager shows the correct use that is around 50%. i really dont know what to do. i think i wil start moving files and reformat in btrfs

my card is actually still giving me issues. it let me write to my steamapps directory, but I can no longer write to my emulation directory. yeah, I'd reformat and good luck actually it let me install 200Gb of games but now won't write anywhere

is that formatted in ntfs or btrfs? cause if it wont let you write the solution is taking back the original folder or drive owner by the way if you want, i will reformat in a few hours. if you want i can try first and then let you know. im moving my files to an ext hard drive. after that i will format the sd using partition manager. i will use btrfs since its so damn better for game performance on sd and for gaining a little bit more space

it is btrfs. and no rush. I have a new 1.5Tb card comin but won't be here for few days
W
Wizzy14d ago
ok, did you ever used a tool called ntfs2btrfs?
P
phaedo14d ago
no. I think i brute force wiped the card and then used bazzite OS to format
W
Wizzy14d ago
if yes, i have used the same tool to convert ntfs into btrfs without formatting. i think that couldve been the culprit

it's very strange. I could install the games to the SD card yesterday, but I went to play BOTW via cemu and my saves, didn't save. now I am trying to create a text file ANYWHERE on the sd card file system and it no go

sudo chown -r user /folderlocation try this command and see if it lets you write. i got this problem and fixed it by doing this in ptyxis oh damn, by user i mean your pc name, like if you named your device MARCO then use sudo chown -r marco /folderlocation not sure if that was clear so just to be sure
P
phaedo14d ago
yeah I figured that part out 🙂 it is giving me grief on the -r. using onscreen keyboard Annnnd the power went out lol
W
Wizzy14d ago
the -r part mean recursive. it is used for telling cmd to use it on all subfolder
P
phaedo14d ago
Stupid winter storm Yeah. It's not recognizing the dash I think from the onscreen keyboard
W
Wizzy14d ago
you could even do that command pointing the entire root of the sd card
P

Ahh now it's capital R in fedora/bazzite That is what I'm trying tod o

Wizzy14d ago
oh damn i dont remember
P
phaedo14d ago
It's running. Be interesting if it works No. It's still saying I have no space again Can't change
W
Wizzy14d ago
but i think you can move files away from it and trying again the same solution you used to do it before but im starting to think that this is something like btrfs problem btw 40% progress moving data, will reply in a few with more info
P
phaedo14d ago
Yeah. It definitely needs a formating
W
Wizzy14d ago
im thinking this too, i will let you know in a few

I got the same issue. Just installed a brand new hard disk last friday and today is showing 0b free (but actually less than 350gb of a 1TB is being in fact used). I can copy things, just can't write, modify or anything like that. It happened again. This is tiring...
