Hi Muhammad,

the root as in Filesystem root has nothing to do with data-analysis-framework ROOT. Concerning your question, see this.

Hi,
letmegooglethat.com is not the friendliest of the search engines, but indeed the problem seems to be that the root of your file system (i.e. the device where the / directory is mounted) is running low on space ā€“ nothing to do with ROOT Iā€™m afraid.

Thanks, so what should i do to free the space in filesystem.root?

Hi,
the usual methods: you can delete some files (you can check which files occupy space e.g. with the ncdu command), or get a bigger hard disk :slight_smile:

Cheers,
