    What do you mean clear?  You would have to delete the files taking up that amount of space.  Really 30GB for pfsense – seems like overkill ;)

    [2.1.2-RELEASE][root@pfsense.local.lan]/root(2): df -H
    Filesystem    Size    Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
    /dev/da0s1a    3.1G    629M    2.2G    22%    /
    devfs          1.0k    1.0k      0B  100%    /dev
    /dev/md0      3.8M    63k    3.4M    2%    /var/run
    devfs          1.0k    1.0k      0B  100%    /var/dhcpd/dev

    So you can see using 22% of my 3.1GB / partition (629MB) – 11% of 30GB is what 3+GB??

    I'm not sure you understand what that is showing you. It's not a counter that you might reset.


  • Based on his English, I figure he means he wants to "free up" some of the space and is worried it's filling up.

  • i'm sorry,  i not good at english, i want clear form 11 to 0 for step up space hdd, thank you

    There is no easy way of clearing disk space in the pfSense webgui. However using 11% is not a problem. 
    3GB is more than a normal install as Johnpoz said above. Are you running Squid?
    Even if you manually remove any surplus caching etc you won't get to 0%. pfSense requires ~500MB to run.
