    My /usr is showing 81% full, which means it is time to do something.
    I have an old /var partition that was removed, after it became full, and symbolic link, created by the DC, moved /var elsewhere.

    Well now my /usr is nearing capacity. I have a lost partition that has about 10gb of free space on it that I feel could be utilized by /usr, since it no longer houses /var.

    My questions:
    1. How do I locate the lost partition? the /var path, that was using it, was deleted from the command line, when it was moved. (stupid me)
    2. How can I move half on my /usr there?
    3. How does symbolic linking work?

    Any advice would be appreciated.
