6Gb of invisible files, or what?
Recently my old home server crashed and I had to get a new one, and
install debian unstable from scratch. I decided that since my old 5Gb
root partition was quite full, I'd double the size to 10Gb so I wouldn't
have problems with that anymore. It took me a while to get the system to
the same state as the old one but now I have it running smoothly. But
today I found out, that out of my 10Gb root partition df only shows
around 300Mb free!
So, I started looking and trying to find out what took all this disk
space. But I didn't get very far. As previously, I used du on all the
directories on root level / to see, which directory was excessively
large. But using du, I only managed to find a bit under 4Gb of files!
And now I'm wondering where the difference comes from and what can I do
Can anybody help me here, to free up some disk space, to help me
understand what's going on?
Thanks in advance,
