I'm trying to track down where all my hard disk space went. I have 1TB total space and, according to my system, 433GB used. However, I know I have more as I don't have any large files or folders that I'm aware of. The following shows the top 10 directories.
du -cks *|sort -rn|head
It says the /var folder is taking up 480GB but when I go into that folder, there is nothing sizeable (i run this from root or '/' w/ su permissions).
What am I missing? Are there any hidden files that that code doesn't pick up? For reference, I am using opensuse 11.3, if that makes a diff.
