I have this network drive setup and running now for about 2 years, I think.

No matter how much crap I have deleted from this drive the amount of FREE SPACE remains the same at 600kb; I have deleted at least 32GB of stuff. :evil:

QUESTION: Dos anyone know how to remedy this.

AMPLIFY: the reason I say crap is because when I first bough this drive it came with the MEMEO (POS) program which never worked for very long. I end ed up with MULTIPLE BACKUPS. I deleted this MEMEO program but I am stuck with all the remnants of a million .DCM files scattered through the 500GB of space. too tedious to delete manually, crashes when I try otherwise.....

priority:free disk space reporting >.DCM file elimination.

Thanks in Advance!

Sounds like you should do a xfs_repair.
I am not sure how to do this via Web interface, but you can use the
acp_commander (because your box is old enough, this still works)
to gain telnet access.
With telnet you can call xfs_repair by hand.
Should be:
Code:
umount /dev/sda6
xfs_repair /dev/sda6
reboot

OKAY, thanks for the response!

I am using a DELL XPS 410 on windows XP-pro.

I have contacted BUFFALO tech support and they have skirted around the issue, partly my fault for mentioning the MEMEO disaster.

XFS?????? I will google and get much info before I attempt this. thanks

this is a reply from teksupport:

Vincent Penoso,

These devices use a Linux based format, and it is the "EZ" model which is devoid
of many features. In short there is no disk check or scan option.

It's possible you may just need to force flash a firmware upgrade.

Thank you,
Seth Z

*******

so is this what thexfs repair is about?

Hi I went in and downloaded the ACP_commander, installed JRE and arrive at a command prompt and entered the following with the corresponding return:

My question is HOW DO I EFFECT AN XFS_REPAIR AT THIS POINT now that i have all these tools?

Unfortunately I can't see what is behind your link.
I would have to login to see what you put there and
I do not have a login for that site.

But you have to use "telnet" to get onto the boxs linux
system.
There you should do this first:
Code:
which xfs_repair

If this returns without any output, try this:
Code:
find / -name xfs_repair

If this returns without any output too, you are lost,
because the executable xfs_repair is missing then.

Otherwise both lines above should return the full path
to the executable and you can try the three lines I posted
before.

You missed the parameter "-o" when calling acp_commander.
"-o" is necessary to "open" the box for telnet.

I need to clarify this and should have right from the beginning and it is probably becoming apparent: I AM A HACK.

I have no idea what I am doing but I read a lot into this stuff and can follow directions.

the "-o" goes where?

then do I add that code you posted earlier where?

Is this stuff over my head and can I readily BRICK my drive trying to be a HERO here?

symptoms: I deleted an addition 5 GB last night and the free space went 600kb to 652kb :x

You already used a parameter "-t" with an additional value "192.168.0.193" with
acp_commander.
Now you have to add another parameter "-o" which has no additional value.
Code:
java -jar acp_commander -t 192.168.0.193 -o

Then you should be able to telnet to your LS box until you restart the box.

I got this thing to fly this afternoon with the following result.

what do you mean by, "Then you should be able to telnet to your LS box until you restart the box", and how do I now effect the xfs_repair?

Thanks in advance!

Turn off the Windows firewall.
Like the error message said, there seems to be a firewall
intercepting the connection.

Now you have to connect using "telnet".
Use this:
Code:
telnet root@192.168.0.93

When asked for a password, just press enter.
Now you should have a command prompt of your LS.
At this command prompt you have to use xfs_repair with
the partition you want to check.
I assume that this will be /dev/sda6. So this is necessary:
Code:
xfs_repair /dev/sda6

Man I am so close. I get in and it says I can now TELNET to my hearts content.

I enter at the prompt, which is the C: prompt not the LS's prompt the following: telnet root@192.168.0.193

this is the return I get: "connecting... to root@192.168.0.193............could not open connection with the host on port 23: connect failed.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. ALMOST THERE!!!! :roll:
