C. Niemi reported receiving an unexpected `filesystem full’ error for afloppy disk even though df reported there being about 900KB freeon the floppy.The explanation he found was that, because of thecompression, it was possible to put many more files than usual on thedisk. As a consequence, there were no more inodes left, even if 900KBdata was still available. (Try `df –inodes’.)

In such a case, I suggest that you increase the amount of inodes whenyou create the file system on the floppy. See the manual pages formke2fs.

On a related note, section What if I try to decompress a file on a full device? for e2compr behaviour when thefilesystem really is full.
