My partition /dev/sda1 keeps filling up. Besides the "/" directory, I cannot tell what directories are even on this partition in order to search for files to delete. I was able to get it down to 97% full yesterday, but already today it is as 100% again.
I did not set up this machine. But looks like /home is on /dev/sda6 (which has tons of space) so no problems there.

EDIT: Still don't know why /dev/sda1 is filling up, but I"m now trying to delete unnecessary packages to free up disk space. However, it won't let me do anything with an apt-get command. It says:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: vim : Depends: vim-runtime (= 2:7.2.445+hg~cb94c42c0e1a-1) but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
This occurs also when I try install something.
EDIT 2: While rebooted got me down to 46% full, now just two days later I am back up to 62% full, and rising. What is filling up my disk?
EDIT 3: Looks like it's going up about 6% per day...already 68% full. That's about 60 mb/day.
EDIT 4: Looks like I am going up 0.03 MB/HR constantly. How can I tell what is filling and where?
