Ticket #8054 (closed defect: obsolete)
Disk errors ("No space left on device" with nearly empty disks)

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
In a FreeBSD guest, doing disk I/O intensive things like copying large/deep directory trees, I'm getting errors after a while:
/: create/symlink failed, no inodes free ./configure: cannot create config.log: No space left on device
although df reports 97% free inodes and 95% free space on disk. These aren't reproducible for exactly the same filenames and somethimes, after restoring the current snapshot and redoing the same operation again, it succeeds.
I had something similar also in the previous x.0 versions (2.0 and 3.0) of VirtualBox, where there were no specific error messages, but general disk failure, so no way to run df anymore.
Maybe it is a matter that I use Linux LVM for storing the VM's data?
