    Hello,

    Can you provide the output from the following command?

    Code:
    df -kh
    Right now, we don't know what your mount points are.

    Thanks!

    I'm uncertain how 67% is a worrisome figure. It wouldn't even cause an alert email.

    Have you ran a du on it to check the files and folders that are showing the largest sizes? There are numerous posts on this forum and online about how to run a du to check file and folder sizes to investigate. Wikipedia even has an article on using du:
