    What can I delete to reduce increase free space on the /dev/sda7 partition?

    Thanks for your help.

    That is your / partition. Not much usually gets stored there. Try looking in /root (root's home). You may have downloaded something there as root and not cleaned it up. Otherwise, try something like 'du -sh /*' and look into the directories that don't have their own mountpoints. Like /.cpan /opt /.spamassassin yada. In any case, if it's not growing I wouldn't be /too/ concerned.
