jukebox - I'm not refering to any of the items in /proc. These are stored in a different filessytem and cannot be edited. If you re-read my post you will see I specifically mention non native audrey files.
booya - maybe it's just my audrey, but anything I place in /nto/bin then try to compress doesn't work. anything. I recreated this several times. put something in /nto/bin, compress, break, move /nto/photon/bin compress work.
I am refering to df's usage display. df reports the actual amount of space used on the filesystem. my guess is that the audrey memory usage only reports usage within areas that were designed to contain audrey data. Like /data and /tmp
df should be a more acurate mreprsentation of your audrey's current position
