This question already has an answer here:
I am running Linux server, we using this server as a samba share drive. From yesterday suddenly, one of the share drive size getting increasing (~ 100 MB every ten min). There are too many folders and sub folders are there in this share drive. Now the share drive running out of space.
Please help me how I can find which folder is getting increasing. I have tried below command to get the size of sub directories of the share drive. But I need to compare the output and its take too long time to find if i am not lucky.
du -sh --maxdepth=1
Can you please suggest me, is there any other way I can find the data transaction in this file system?
