If you have been looking at large images it might be that .thumbnails is building up. You could check this at two ways:
1. Use Disk Usage Analyzer and check what folder(s) is the culprit.
2. Involves using the terminal, but I prefer this way, because then you could focus on the hidden folders in /home/user/ (which is generally the culprits when the HDD is loosing space):
- Code: Select all
du -c --max-depth=1 /home/user/.[a-zA-Z0-9_]* | sort -k1,1 -n
Here is an example of what mine gives:
I see that .mozilla and .cache is the largest folders, so I would go about and clean them out
Even though 36696 bytes is only roughly 34 MB, I can clean out my temp files in Firefox, and then be on my way..
