Full Version: /home 100% although actual data is no where near 100%
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I'm fairly new to Linux and just recently rebuilt my Laptop with Centos. This morning, I start getting an alert that my home volume disk usage is at 100% with 0 bytes free. I run the disk analyzer and it shows it as 100% but when I look at the files, I'm probalby not at even 5%. My home volume is 228G and my data is probably around 15G.

Are there hidden files or something? How do I go about cleaning up whatever is using the space?

Thanks for your help.
Welcome to

How is the drive partitioned and are you using LVM? Have you deleted any files lately? If a file is deleted but the process has it opened it will still appear as used space.
