I'm running freeaxp with two disk images mounted:
on disk0.0 I have an image of 3,99 Go containing openvms 7.1 system
on disk0.1 I have an image of 3,99 Go containing applications
I just face a problem of "disk full" on my application disk but I do not understand why
If i do a show device I got:
Device Device Error Volume Free Trans Mnt
Name Status Count Label Blocks Count Cnt
DSA0: Mounted 0 AXPVMSSYS 6243948 361 1
DSA1: Mounted 0 DISKAPPLI 0 182 1
$1$DKA0: (ALPHA1) ShadowSetMember 0 (member of DSA0
$1$DKA100: (ALPHA1) ShadowSetMember 0 (member of DSA1
so that tell me that the application disk is full, but doing on one side
$> dir dsa1:[...]/size/grand_total
Grand total of 454 directories, 24791 files, 8239810 blocks.
and on the other side
$> show device dsa1/full
Disk DSA1:, device type RZ29B, is online, mounted, file-oriented device,

So I got 8380080 total blocks - 8239810 used blocks = 0 blocks left
Could some one explain where are gone the 8380080- 8239810=140270 blocks i.e more than 70Mb that disapear!!
Take a look at the file FDL's. Allocation and extent sizes are stored there. They can be modified using EDIT/FDL and the CONVERT utility.
In addition to general clean-up to recover space, you could also do an image backup to a new disk. This will make the files contiguous and recover some space, particularly if you have lots of large, fragmented files. However, if your disks are nearly full, then this is just a stop gap, Time for some more disks and/or larger disks.
Since you are running FreeAXP, you could also compress the disk file from the Windows side to create space for a larger virtual volume. As with any software, there is a very small I/O penalty when accessing compressed volumes with FreeAXP. I use this technique often on archive volumes that see little activity.

prohorenko February 17 2018 Please help to obtain the license on OpenVMS
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
