I have a 10 gigabit partition / home, where I do not have any personal files only Plasma5 configuration files.
Today I see a message that is almost full.
I check and see that the home occupies 779.5 megabits, but then …
Then from Dolphin I click on the partition that hosts / home and appears to me](
This Systemd-Timesynk occupies the beauty of 7.5 Gigabit, but is it normal?>:(

I do not know why, but in yast> Users and Groups I had a Systemd-Timesynk user who I do not know where he came from
I’ve eliminated it (with some fear)
I restarted and everything works, now the home occupies the right space

Has anyone ever experienced such a thing?

It may be that somebody knows what was going on there, but now, because you now have destroed all information, there is almost nothing. Please next time do not post such a Dolphin picture, but use the CLI (as root):

ls -l /home

and copy/paste that here (between CODE tags, it is the # button in the tool bar of the post composer).

Better readable for others, maybe easier for you then creating a screen shot and uploading it somewhere, and providing much more relevant information. :wink:

I’m using systemd-timesyncd.service too, but I’ve never seen such a folder.


You are right twice … but if I get a problem I try to fix it by me, even before posting I’ve already removed .config .local .cache and moved .mozilla and .thunderbird to the second hd creating links to not stay planted .
Already the screenshot showed 500 megabits of space.
In Yast> users and groups there was also systemd-network and another that I remember besides systemd-timesynk, three unexplained systemd users
Maybe I could have avoided doing the post.:question:

ls -l /home
totale 20
drwxr-xr-x 25 enziosavio users 4096 20 ago 18.52 enziosavio
drwx------ 2 root root 16384 25 lug 15.10 lost+found

I understand very well how this works. One tries to solve the problem and meanwhile forgets to gather information for the case one needs help. Only normal.

But nevertheless I think a hint might work in remembering next time that making notes, or better save some output about what you found somewhere might be worth to spend somm time on.

Also I wanted to stress that posting pictures of end-user tools like Dolphin is not always the best way to look at information. The extra layer of an end-user oriented tool often removes a lot of important information for the system manager. And the latter role is the one you have when solving problems like this one.
And you show the contents of /home as it is now:

  1. you did the command it correct;
  2. as you already understand the output now does not show you problem anymore;
  3. you forgot to include the prompts in your copy/paste (which may contain usefull informtion for your helpers) and you did NOT post it between CODE tags. Please do not forget that, without it the text may be distorted or damaged and many hee will not take the trouble to read such texts for fear of headache.

An example from my system on how that looks:

boven:~ # ls -l /home
total 32
drwxr-xr-x  6 mysql  mysql 4096 Jun  7  2015 databases
drwxr-xr-x 85 henk   wij   4096 Aug 20 19:41 henk

drwxrwxrwx 22 henk   wij   4096 Aug  8 13:52 wij
boven:~ #

which I think is much neater and more informative then your’s.

Today I have noticed that in Yast> users and groups there are still> systemd-coredump> systemd-network> systemd-timesynk
It must be so ?
Does it happen to you too?
With Leap42.2 this did not happen!
And since I did this post, because from today to tomorrow I found myself with the full home because the directory / systemd / timesync from nowhere was formed

On the other computer Tumbleweed Gnome, these Users are not there](

ok because you can not understand this thing, I do so by removing them
