Last night I had about 190GB of free space on my 500GB HDD. Today I have about 80GB free. I ran
df and discovered that my
/home/jon/.Private folder is currently using 80% of my hard drive.
What. The. Hell.
I really don't need to encrypt my files that bad. Can anyone tell me why I've lost so much space to this, and what I can do to recover as much free space as possible?
I realize that I'm not going to get back 330-something odd GB of space, but I lost 100GB overnight. I'm new enough to Ubuntu (and Linux in general) that I don't want to proceed without a firm understanding of what's going on here.
Thanks in advance, guys.
