Re: /home using the space 87%, Help needed...please.

Start by looking at all of the directories in /home.

 

# du -ks * | sort -n

 

This will show all directorires and their size in KB, sorted smallest to largest.

 

You can then find the largest directory, cd into it, and run the command again to see the size of those files / directories.
