    Hi,

    Currently the disk of our VPS is full and we're not able to delete the data.
    When looking at the disk usage we see that there is ±136Gb used:
    Code:
    Other Usage‡    135,846.68 MB
    136,196.84 MB total disk space used.

    But we cannot find any file that is that big
    Screen Shot 2019-03-28 at 09.21.08.png

    when running this command df -h we see this:
    /dev/mapper/vg_cpanel-lv_root 148G 148G 397M 100% /

    So apparently there is something that big but we cannot locate it.

    At the moment its almost impossible to use the server

    How do i find and remove the files responsible?

    It's probably not in an account. In shell go into /var and /usr and run

    du -h --max=1|grep G

    To find large folders and drill down when you find one curiously large.

    You may wanna try this:

    find / -user CpanelUser

    It will search for files related to the Cpanel user.

    Hope it helps.
