I have a question about keeping my disk space as clean as possible.
Why I ask:
Yesterday I had 350+ Gb of disk usage.
But today I returned to the disk image from December 2021, installed all missing packages, downloaded all files from backup, updated everything. Now I have 135Gb of used space. The same system, the same packages, the same files.
I read several articles about pacman cash, cleaning system, orphaned packages and didn’t find anything where I should search for these additional 200+ Gb.
How is it possible? Maybe I do something wrong? How is it possible to have 130Gb and around 350Gb on the same system? How should I keep my system as clean as possible?
I doubt it, because it is only 3,9 Gb of “unshared differences” between December and now. And I do not shapshot /home directory…
Maybe I am talking about something I do not understand fully, of course.
Is it possible for btrfs snapshots to be so lagre?
Yes, I have this. Now it is actually 72 Gb as I moved all videos, records and backups to my storage. I just afraid that in 2-3 months it will be 350 Gb again. I will check it further as I see it isn’t an obvious question related to some simple mistake in OS maintenance I could made.
