I did everything but the solution was provided by TB itself when it gave an error message at startup. Just uncheck the mount namespace separation option in supersu. Done.
I saw that message many times but never had an issue with TB - till today! 40GB free on a TB setup that has worked for 15 months and suddenly...! Tick namespace off and reboot and all betterer... thanks for the reminder mate.
