Am currently running dos mode not graphical mode.
Could you have any other method.
You are correct.
qmailtoaster backup file which was around 184 GB in backup.gz type and i
have removed .bz2 type file with the same backup/mailbkup directory.
After removed .bz2 file it's gone backup.gz also which was 184 GB file.
I have run this command locate .gz but couldn't find out it.
how do i see the open files.
Could you help me to find out this file or any soln.
