Backups completely filling root drive.

I have effectively destroyed two Kubuntu 6.0.6 installations while
attempting to copy to a mounted backup drive using cp -a. When the copy
finishes, df says there is 0 space left in my / partition and I don't
know why. The / partition is normally 10 gig with 3.5 gig used.
Now that I'm working with my 3rd install, I'd like to try and find out
I have a feeling it has to do with the fact that the target drive is
mounted under /mnt/name but I don't see why that should have anything to
do with the space on the source partition.
Any ideas? Larry
