    I assume with "already wiped" you mean you have done it by the button in the GUI of OMV. Did you have ZFS on the drives (e.g from previous use with other NAS systems). If yes, search the forum for "wipefs" and you fill find some threads how to deal with…

    As root: du -d1 -h -x / | sort -h This will show you the folders in the root directory that are using the most space. If you want to see more in the most used folder (/var for instance), then: du -d1 -h -x /var/ | sort -h

    Thread
    i really wish i knew what was taking up the space in the OMV system drive. in windows i could use windirstat and find out what was taking up the space. is there any way to see what is taking up so much space and see if any of it is safe to delete?
