You can Try Df -k command to see the file system size in unix..if you are using solaris and bdf will do in HPUX....
then to increase file system size it will be always advisable to take the back up first and then do the manipulation and restore the data........
U can increase file system size in solaris ..use format command to select a hard disk and chenage the size.create a new file system and mount it on required mount point..BUT DON"T FORGET TO TAKE BACK before.
IN HPUx you can increase the file system size through SAM utility..with out taking back up also no data will be lost but always play safe and keep back up.
