After filling up my hard drive with images and containers, I expected I would be able to remove them using standard docker rm commands, and free up hard drive space.
Containers and images removed successfully, but hard disk space still being used. I narrowed it down to the QEMU file being used for the docker vm (it’s 45gb right now).
Steps to reproduce the behavior
- On system with relatively small hard drive(100gb SSD), build some big images
- Try to remove images, observe hdd space does not free up on host.
