Failed to save chunk: java.io.IOException: No space left on device

I am using 1.16.5 and even though there is 4.88GB Storage Space (with 434MB used) it says that it cannot save the worlds because it ran out of storage space.

This didn’t happen before and it started happening randomly

Can you post the output of df?

Please use a paste site such as https://paste.gg/ and send your entire log next time.

what do you mean? what is ‘df’

since it spammed the log so much the file was too big to be viewed

df is a command that shows info about your disk usage. It is a part of coreutils and shipped by default on the vast majority of systems. This would only apply if you are hosting yourself. If you are using a host, you’d need to contact them.
