After checking my disk space in Xubuntu, I noticed I have files holding unnecessary disk space and not coming close to using it. Is there a way to limit the space it is holding?
I have marked the entries with
**. As you can see, they are allocated 7.8 and 3.2 GBs but not coming close to using any of it. Can I shrink them down to 2GB each?
