OS disk full

  • Hi, my OS disk is almost full. Size is 8gb, was always fine for 2 years now.
    My linux is not that, how can I clean up? I already ran apt-get clean and deleted some logs. Also after that is possible to login but tomorrow not anymore.

  • Use
    du -x -d1 -h / to check which folder is using most of the space.


    -x: only current file system, do not descent
    -d1: only first level
    -h: human readable


    Once you found out which folder is using more space than you want post here again.

  • if you use dockers, revise docker folder on /var/lib , mine is 4,5GB in size

  • Have just seen that you already posted that /var/lib is quite big.
    What is inside?

    How can I see that best, what command?


    And I dont use plex, but I am using Virtualbox. There was a test machine on it, I deleted that, that free'd up /var/lib

    You shouldn't need to put anything in /var/lib when using virtualbox.


    How can I see that best, what command?

    du -d1 -x -h /var/lib/ | sort -h
