    It looks to me like there are three different sets of files from upgrades present. Is it safe for me to simply delete anything related to these

    *2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64*
    and
    *2.6.32-358.2.1.el6.x86_64*



    Thanks!

    Just found this. Will the steps here take care of the issue for me safely?

    Hello :)

    cPanelDon wrote a good response to a similar question a few years ago that should be helpful to you:

    Clean Boot Partition

    Thank you.

    Great! I followed the steps outlined and removed the oldest of the three installed kernels. That took it down to about 55%. All is well in my world now... Another +1 for you Michael. I think its time for them to give you a raise (or at least one additional sugar cookie in your lunch box).
