/bin/date: write error: File too large

What file is too large?
# 2  
/bin/date or /bin/data (you talk about both and i'm not familar with /bin/data).
# 3  
Question /bin/date

What would cause it to become too large? I have not changed anything.

How would I go about fixing it?
# 4  
Looks like /bin/date is trying to write the data to a file and they filesystem is full, or you are over your disk space quota. Is there a system quota imposed on your disk space usage by the system admin?
# 5  
No Quota

I don't have a quota - It's on a dedicated server - 9 Gb harddrive. Files are being written and deleted all the time.
# 6  
Question Anyone?

This error:
/bin/date: write error: File too large

is written to the error_log over and over. I can empty the error log and open it back up and within a few seconds, it is written numerous times.

Anyone have an idea?
