maybe you can find out what uses most of your space using `du` and `lsof`... See the corresponding man pages for infos on how to use those tools.
Maybe a backup? I see you store backup files on local.
Ok thnx for your help. I found the problem. Nut application (upslog) was configured wrong and was creating logs very fast. Problem solved.
