I have no idea what is going on. I had a 20GB partition for my install on my internal HD. The icon was always green on my taskbar and for some reason it is now red. I can't seem to find the culprit by using gdmap. It's as if something is being copied to my partition because as I check the red icon, space is dwindling. What should I do to find out what is going on?

My partition is 45GB.

I see no one has come in to help yet . One thing you can be sure of .
The savefile being used is filling up with something.

I would approach it by booting from a live CD again and then opening the savefile , looking through to find the culprit , deleting whatever and then going and stopping it happening down the line .

A boot from a usb stick would do too using a savefile on the stick or using "pfix" on boot to not load a savefile

If you have a save file; you do not have a "full" install!

Look in G-parted to see how much space is being used.

It looks like it is a crontab I am running that is copying some files from sda2 to sdb1. I was told that if sdb1 is not mounted that the crontab will create a folder in /mnt called sdb1 and copy to that. That is exactly what is happening so I always have to make sure that sdb1 is always mounted.

I tried using startmount tool but that does not work. When I restart my computer, it does not mount. I still have to manually click on the sdb1 icon which is a pain because if I forget to do this, I'm back to my original problem. Is there a way to put a force mount in the crontab I am using?

Here you go:

rsync -r -t -p -o -g -v --progress --delete -s /mnt/sda2/LPs/ /mnt/sdb1/LPs
