    Hi,

    I ran df -h after trying to get rclone working...for what ever reason I run out of memory, but that is besides the point now as I was debugging to see if it cached something on disk as it was working.

    I noticed the /dev/root is 100% used. Is this normal or did I somehow get stuff saved in there?
    Note: I've been playing with entware to get rclone working, but I was sure that stuff gets saved to /dev/sda1.

    CODE
    Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/root 36.1M 36.1M 0 100% /
    devtmpfs 251.4M 0 251.4M 0% /dev
    tmpfs 251.6M 2.0M 249.6M 1% /tmp
    /dev/mtdblock4 64.0M 14.4M 49.6M 22% /jffs
    /dev/sda1 2.0G 90.5M 1.8G 5% /tmp/mnt/entware
    /dev/sda2 1.7G 497.3M 1.1G 30% /tmp/mnt/absolution

    That's normal. /dev/root is ROM.

    That was what I was thinking...but after mucking around with all this stuff yesterday, I wasn't sure if maybe I wrote something to flash.
    Thank you for taking the time out of your day to write back.
