Space Usage on Linux

Wondering where all your stuff is and why you're out of quota?

Wondering why GeoS IT Help have forward you to this page?

If you're running out of space there may be things lurking on your home space you're not aware of. This page hopes to help by giving you hints and tip on how to monitor your space usage.

From your linux command line run this: du -sh ~/* ~/.??* | sort -h it'll give you a list of the contents of your home space ordered by size.

Please look carefully at the list it produces and see if there's anything in it that could be slimmed down.
