What is taking up so much space on my disk, beside the filesystem?
I asked this on stackoverflow, but maybe here is a better place.
On my ubuntu 11.10, /dev/sda3 (150GB) is mounted on / and /dev/sda1 (80GB) is mounted on /home. My entire disk has 250GB and the system is reporting I am running out of disk space. Here is the output of df -h:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 149G 141G 0 100% /
udev 3.9G 4.0K 3.9G 1% /dev
tmpfs 1.6G 860K 1.6G 1% /run
none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
none 3.9G 508K 3.9G 1% /run/shm
/dev/sda1 74G 15G 56G 21% /home
Ubuntu disk usage analyzer report the same thing. But this is weird because I believe I never used that much space on /. I also check every individual directory under / ( exclude /home ), and they don't use that much space:
Any one could give me some idea what is using up the space? Thanks in advance.
one thing to add is that I turned the ufw log to full, then I noticed some extreme large log files. But I deleted the log files and turned the ufw log to low again. not sure if that's the problem.
