fsctl error: Inappropriate ioctl for device, using HARDCODED desired threshold 12335448064 for volume_size: 1000169537536

 

I'm dual booting windows 10 which for some reason after updating to Mojave I'm unable to choose windows from the boot menu. I have to go into the bios and choose the windows drive. The windows drive doesn't have the UEFI in front of it anymore.

I'd also like to understand this better as I'm having it on an actual Mac Pro with Mojave. Really concerns me since I'm having some strange hangs and such issues that seem filesystem related in some way, but all hardware is testing out as good.

 

Console contents:

error    10:01:01.123456 -0000    deleted    fsctl error: Inappropriate ioctl for device, using HARDCODED low disk threshold 10737418140 for volume_size: 9314695214218

 

It might be worth looking closer at https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/254810/what-is-the-deleted-daemon-in-macos-sierra

 

I'm wondering what process is triggering the `deleted` CacheDelete service (daemon) in this case. It doesn't seem clear about how to isolate this kind of information, but I have to assume something is registered to CacheDelete and causing this and has to be trackable somehow. 

 

One thing that we can do is to use `lsof -p <PID_NUMBER>` from Console info down below and get some more info like this:

$ lsof -p 779
COMMAND PID     USER   FD   TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF      NODE NAME
deleted 779 USERNAME  cwd    DIR   1,26     2048         2 /
