I have allocated 6.1 TB on a (net) 7.2 TB disk, yet currently there is less than 170 GB free space left. Apart from the falsely reported space use in the web UI (I am aware of this apparent issue from other posts) still showing almost 2 TB “free” and only 4 TB used, soon the physical space will run out on the disk. Instead of allocating even less space to the node, is there anything I can do to make sure the drive does not become full and potentially corrupt data? Can all the data be forcefully re-checked?
The free space on the drive was at around 500 GB for the past months, and as such I though that would still be in the overhead limit and that only the web UI reporting issue exists. However, the node started to dowload more data recently. My node is on Windows docker, running fine for a long time now, apart from the above serious space overrun issue. There are no apparent errors in the log. I also do not see any space being recovered from garbage collection or anything over the course of the past few weeks.
Edit: Clarification, Windows docker.
