Hetzner fresh install with ~280GB used


So I did a fresh install of quickbox on a hetzner server. No issues but for some reason 280 GB is used from the hard disk space. I followed the tutorial gif on setting RAID to 0 so that can’t be the issue. Where did the storage go?


System reserved space. Used for whenever a user might fill up all the hdd, root can still login.
All depending on your linux image, it could be predefined to 5% of storage reserve.

Look up tune2fs if its something you want to change.

Nothing QB have any effect on


So I did this and it worked

tune2fs 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)
Setting reserved blocks percentage to 1% (14598236 blocks)
