    * lvbeenyuen,

    in such situations I found it very helpful to have a graphical display of directory sizes. Are you using KDE? In Konqueror, click View, View Mode, File Size View and watch your /home. This will probably give you a hint.

    Also check filelight, Baobab or gdmap.

    Another option is to run
    Code:
    du -h /home
    from a command prompt
    to list what directory/files are eating up your space.

    Yeah, but with an aging /home like mine with tons of beagle indexes, Novell iManager installed and 20GB of MP3s, it will result in a list the length of "War and Peace" :-)
