Freing up some space in virtual server so called Proxmox.

I did not (yet) get a reply from proxmox forum so I thought maybe someone knows about it.
I tried these:

Code:

dd if=/dev/zero of=zero.small.file bs=1024 count=102400
dd if=/dev/zero of=zero.file bs=1024
rm zero.small.file
sync ; sleep 60 ; sync
rm zero.file


But I got:
[root@antispam ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=zero.small.file bs=1024 count=102400
102400+0 records in
102400+0 records out
104857600 bytes (105 MB) copied, 6.50482 seconds, 16.1 MB/s
[root@antispam ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=zero.file bs=1024
dd: writing `zero.file’: No space left on device
28806481+0 records in
28806480+0 records out
29497835520 bytes (29 GB) copied, 1268.94 seconds, 23.2 MB/s
[root@antispam ~]# rm zero.small.file
rm: remove regular file `zero.small.file’? yes
