    Hey all,

    I've got a bit of a strange situation here.

    Randomly, while playing (with seemingly no cause) the hard drive on my server instantly fills up.

    I believe this is because of my rollback plugin, Hawkeye, producing temp files or something at an outrageous rate. This used to happen with CoreProtect as well.

    I think it's a temp file problem because when I restart the computer, the hard drive empties out again.

    I'm running Ubuntu 11.something and the 1.4.5 Bukkit.

    What could be causing this?

    Already gave that a try, there is seemingly no folder or file in any directory above the size of 8gb. My user directory says it has 256gb fully occupied but when I see what's inside of it, there's only ~10gb of content. I checked for hidden folders too, nothing...

    Still need help with this issue.

    I took a look at the data over time on the server, and it turns out that the data doesn't occur spontaneously, instead it fills up slowly...

    It sounds to me like CoreProtect or Hawkeye are just creating their logs dumbly, not on the SQL server as they're supposed to...
