 When the drive is 102% full, where is that 2%
Author: Mark Stosberg

Today I ran into a "file system full" error on FreeBSD myself. I ran "df -k" and noticed that a partition was 106 percent full. I clean out some some files and brought it down to under 100%, and things seemed to work fine again. Where was that extra 6% hanging out, though? Was data being lost, or was it being safely stored and restored from elsewhere in the system?
