In addition to the above, you may also find these commands useful:

To list the top 5 largest folders on the server, run:
du -a / | sort -n -r | head -n 5

To find the largest files, use:
find / -type f -exec du -Sh {} + | sort -rh | head -n 5

Thank you very much, solve the problem thanks to your help
