Gitlab folders

Hi There,

Does anyone know what these files are for and can we just delete them ?
/var/lib/containers/storage/overlay-containers

I got an error try to edit the .rb file

Error: mkdir /var/lib/containers/storage/overlay-containers/2fba3df7f526f85477cff96e8e653b15593529f5cd3798a80a1b800757b10758/userdata/645b7c26ece6b6154848182dd285f8b3f714e19c45d4a1115f70848975c583be: no space left on device

Hi,

those are Docker image virtual filesystems, do not delete them manually using rm and alike, it can break your system. Run docker images to see the images and their size, similar to running containers, and prune the unused ones. Helpful command: docker image prune | Docker Documentation

Cheers,
Michael

The error also shows you ran out of disk space when attempting to create it. You need to free some space or resize your partition if possible.
