kdirstat is your friend...

kdirstat scans a directory tree and shows very impressive where your disk
space goes to...

You will be baffled where your disk space gets lost ...
It's easy to forget some huge "temp" files like videos.

kdirstat resides in its own package, to be installed with yast. And, luckily,
you may scan mounted discs of clients running any OS.
