@wormguy, Ubuntu (and other linux distros) generally clean up
/tmp automatically before or after use. You might try rebooting the WSL, and if that doesn’t help, try rebooting Win10.
If that still doesn’t help, and if you are certain this is a disk space issue, not, e.g., an out-of-memory error you’ve encountered, you might take a look at what’s laying around in your Ubuntu partition’s
/tmp/ directory. The following will get you to
tmp and list the directories there with human-readable sizes. If it looks like there are qiime 2 directories there that are eating up a lot of space, you could try manually deleting them. (not while QIIME 2 processes are running, please!).
Note: you’ll probably need to use
sudo to run some of these commands. be careful!
# ..... if you find some big unneeded temp files
rm -r some_big_huge_directory
Some additional background:
/tmp cleanup may not happen on WSL linux instances (1, 2), or may require manual intervention or user configured cron jobs. These linked issues have been closed, but not because there’s been a targeted fix to the issues. Rather, support for user-configured
cron jobs has been set up.
Let us know what you turn up,
