[ubuntu] 12.04: File System Full - What's Taking all the Space?!

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys, I have 8 GB on my SSD reserved for Ubuntu (my home folder is on my second hard disk and has 1 TB). Since I started using Ubuntu in March 2009, 8 GB has always been way more than enough - Ubuntu used to take up 4.5 GB at most. Now, all of a sudden, it's taking 7 GB and I only have 650 MB left to work with. It's making all my applications crash because they don't have enough space left to operate. Ubuntu Tweak even crashed when I ran the Janitor to clean stuff up. I don't know what's taking all this space all of a sudden! I've been doing a lot of video and audio transcoding / rippin (Hardware)
