    Default Server Drive Filling Up

    I'm still essentially a Linux n00b, so when I get a message like this about my dedicated server...

    Drive Warning: /dev/sda5 (/) is 81% full
    ...I am a little perplexed.

    The mount point for sda5 appears to be the root ( / ). But I have lots of other devices with plenty more space available (even though they are of course all mounted to subdirectories of / ).

    How critical is it to keep lots of padding in sda5? What can I do to ensure it doesn't fill up?

    I would really appreciate any advice you can offer.

    Hello,
    usually, if 81% of disk space on some disk partition is used, it is not a big problem. But it becomes a problem when it reaches 90 %.
