SD card space - gza710 - 04-12-2018

I have a 16GB card. For some reason its all filled up and I can't get the rest of my posters, etc for my movies to download. When I do a 'lsblk' command I get the following:

sda 8:0 0 3.7T 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 200M 0 part
└─sda2 8:2 0 3.7T 0 part /home/shares
mmcblk0 179:0 0 14.9G 0 disk
├─mmcblk0p1 179:1 0 41.5M 0 part /boot
└─mmcblk0p2 179:2 0 14.8G 0 part /

I deleted and turned off all video thumbnails. And I checked my metadata folder size and its only about 1.5GB. I don't understand where the rest of my space went.

Please help.

I'd suggest using the ncdu tool to find the culprit, and please report back.

I think I included ncdu on PlexPi 1.3+ but if not, just use sudo apt install ncdu

Then run: sudo ncdu -x /home
