    Disk space issue

    Hello!

    My system is running out of disk space and I did

    user@user-MS-7817:~$ du .
    Then I noticed 59666340 ./.cache/upstart .... and this one looks terribly big.

    Is there any way I could resize that? If so how?

    Thanks

    You could resize your harddisk using the Ubuntu installation image. Boot from USB or CD and fire up Partition Editor to tinker with the various partitions. I am not sure what this cache partition of yours is though.

    I'd check what you have in there that's causing the size - but I've deleted one and it gets rebuilt on reboot.

    "You could resize your harddisk using the Ubuntu installation image. Boot from USB or CD and fire up Partition Editor to tinker with the various partitions."

    Ok so I boot from original Ubuntu CD and find Partition Editor. That is some program? I thought it was gparted.

    "I'd check what you have in there that's causing the size"

    How can I check it?

    Thanks

    It is gparted.

    Code:
    du ~/.cache/upstart/ -a -BK
    will tell you what files you have in there and their apparent sizes in Kb

    I'd be looking for one's that are bigger than a few kilobytes.

    Alternatively - just open it in nautilus.

    Doesn't look like it's very big to me.

    What do you get from
    Code:
    df -h
    and

    sudo du -h --max-depth=1 /
