No space left on device


I am trying to add very large files to my container.
The build fails with “No space left on device”.

I tried to follow the steps in but was not successful.

Can someone suggest me how to increase the size of a container?

That url is about the devicemapper backend - boot2docker defaults to using aufs.

however, I think your virtual machine is likely running out of space (a more fundamental issue), for which may help
