Even after freeing up large files, a host can still appear to be
full. Some apps keep files open. You may need to reboot to
realize disk savings

Hi list,

I have to throw some bites away, but when i look, i cannot find where
all space went..
How can i see which files absorb all the space?
If i throw something away with shift-del, does it realy dissappear from
the disk of does it remain in some obscure unseen recycle bin?
If there exists a recycle bin, where does it linger? How do i call upon
it, to see if there is something in it?

Assuming you've already emptied your trash in whatever desktop environ
you're using.. have you poked your /tmp? That can fill up with debris
of failed downloads, extracted files, flash videos you've watched etc.
