I am receiving "The minimum free disk space (5000MB) reached" error, when I attempt to index or search, but the dispach directory is almost empty.

Clear up (or grant additional) space until you have more than 2gb of free space, then the complaint about less than 5gb of free space will go away.

If this is a testing instance and you somehow cannot get more free space you can configure the limit to a lower setting, but I would not recommend it.

How much space is on that mount and any others splunk might use?

$ df -h

On that mount, a bit over than 2 gb. On the other (which I am currently trying to switch too), a bit over 800 gb.
