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?


Have you tried an app called 'bleachbit'. It does an analysis of your
hard drive and suggests stuff to be deleted , thus freeing up tons of space.


I just had a look at bleachbit and personally I would use it with caution. I ticked on an item just to see what would come up and I was shown that all of my data in Firefox would get wiped - all my bookmarks, cache, etc for example :-( .

However, there is another app. called computer-janitor which I have used and this one knows what it is doing - for example I know that I have 2 old versions of the kernel sitting here and it 'told' me that these 2 will be removed because they are no longer required.

But, this is just my thinking......
