    The three normal places that use the most space are /home, /usr and /var. I would go into each of those folders and run

    du -h --max=1|grep G

    This will show you the largest folders in each of those as you run them and then you can drill down deeper on the larger folders to see what is taking up space.

    If you have a large amount of data that is unaccounted for in those three then you have to start looking in other folders in / using teh same command.

    This is almost exactly what I would do in this situation as well
