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?

Try looking in your /tmp dir and also /var/log. You can set up log
rotation and the automatic cleanout of /tmp.

What does this have to do with a lack of space in a separate /home
filesystem? People please read the *whole* thread before responding.
