    A quick question about free disk space

    Hi All

    Couple weeks ago I had a half of my disc free, but I found today that there is no space(see the system info below). I did not save/create any big files, so it is not clear where the space disappeared.

    My disc is 450G, Home directory is 190G, Root in 252G. However, I do not understand why root is so big. There are no any big folders in it. Except Home, all other folders together are not more than 10G. So, where these 240G are? See two attached images (baobab's result and folders sizes).

    Could you please advise what happened and how to free space. I am not very advanced linux user (just use it to run my software), please send me simple instructions.

    Use the Disk Usage Analyzer to see what's eating up all that space.
