I would check your transaction logs. Are you doing this as one giant
transaction? The system may be filling up the logs just in case you need

Subject: Where did my disk space go?
I've been using Perl 8.4+ (ActiveState) on WinXP. My program runs for
(> 20) hours issuing SQL UPDATE and DELETE commands. The update commands
should not be increasing the storage requirements, I'm just updating
I've noticed several times now that I run out of disk space. I started
a gigabyte free. Last time, I aborted the program, compressed my disk,
retrieved much lost disk space and started again.
Now I tried that again: no luck. I rebooted and recompressed again. I'm
still out of disk space.
It seems that MySQL just keeps using more and more disk space.
How can I retrieve my lost disks pace?
