I made a project on raspberry pi 3+ and left it on over a weekend. After 4 days, when I came back, the program was not working. When I try to connect it with Remote Desktop, it was not working. I connected it over online server, the terminal was working but after 4,5 commands, it died too..... Than I restarted the raspberry pi than the project starts working fine... This happens because I checked the memory card's memory usage and it was full before restart 12.6 / 12.7 GB and was of the reduced / proposed size 5.00 / 12.7 GB. maybe its because of the log file? i dont know for sure!

This happens every time after few days. What would you suggest for this problem? Shall I reboot it every day via crontab command? I read at some places that this method will effect the working of rpi.... Any solution will be appreciated !!!!

    You need to find out what is using the disk space. Look at the du command which might help pinpointing large files. – joan Jan 7 '19 at 8:37
