Had to reset my device on weekend, first tried btrfs recovery from the recovery telnet menu, didn't work, then did factory reset that worked, since device was showing almost full memory usage did reset device then from the settings menu, still no luck. I now have <1GB left on the device. How to fix it? From the recovery telnet menu, shell and btrfsck? Or is it possible to unmount the p28 while GUI is running? Anyone has experience with such problem?

Could be an issue related to the local-device-sync-cache. What does devel-su -c du --si /home/nemo/.local/share/system/privileged | tail -n 1 say? If it's super large, then it's likely to be image files synced from Facebook, and possibly also avatars/covers.

If so, you can manually clear it via ssh into the device, devel-su, and then rm /home/nemo/.local/share/system/privileged/Images and also /home/nemo/.local/share/system/privileged/Contacts (lots of avatar images there). Obviously beware the last one if you have local data in your phonebook/addressbook which you don't want to lose.

@Kari Thanks, that actually worked for the second time (first time I tried to delete them after cding into /mnt and that gave me 'no space left on device' and then 'read only system mode', which is why I hoped to get step by step or at least a second opinion, deleting subvolumes from / with "/mnt/rec..." worked, back to 2.6GB used)
