I don't know that I would even be able to help, since I use fixed ext4
partitions for the same purpose, but I think the output of df would
give a better idea of your system layout and partition sizes and usage
in case there is someone who *can* help.

I'm not familiar with btrfs from using it, only from reading the
comments of people responding to problems, but from what I understand,
this should be *easy* in btrfs for someone who knows what they are
doing (definitely not me!).
