Please kindly assist me, i really dont know whats consuming my space. I ran the following ( ```
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
To check files which size is more than 100 MB:
find / -type f -size +100M 2>/dev/null
/backup is a good start
I created this script a few years ago and it will show top x number of files and dirs
that take up the most of space.
To use it:
curl -s https://gist.githubusercontent.com/sahsanu/77e33540bbc93da06a94afa572bdd15e/raw/7281e0c193af21633ac20c81bd6169a26fb036c0/checkfs -o /usr/local/bin/checkfs chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/checkfs checkfs /
checkfs script help:
Usage: checkfs [<FILESYSTEM>] [-f] [-s] FILESYSTEM, If not specified, the script will use the current directory as FILESYSTEM. -f is the number of files and directories to display. If not specified it will display TOP 10 files and TOP 10 directories. -s is the minimum size in MB of the files or directories you want to display. Default is 5MB Example 1: checkfs Example 2: checkfs -f 20 Example 3: checkfs -s 10 Example 4: checkfs -f 20 -s 10 Example 5: checkfs /tmp Example 6: checkfs /tmp -f 20 Example 7: checkfs /tmp -s 10 Example 8: checkfs /tmp -f 20 -s 10
Thanks Alot. I managed to free some disc space after deleting some backup.
I appreciate your time.
Limit the backups the user can make or use external storage …
Thanks for your kind suggestions.
Check the logs folder. Maybe there are some websites under attack and the log file size is growing fast as lightning
