i'm new and i hope to find an answer here. Please tell me, if you need more information.
I have an disk encryption for my home partition on Linux 4.13.0-43-generic x86_64 (Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS).
Today when I started the laptop, I got the message, that my disk is full and there is no available space any more. With the disk usage analysis I saw, that the encryption directory (/home/.ecryptfs/bianca/.Private) is completly full - the other partition have enough space. I did not find any answer by Google, but I would like to know, if there may be encryption files, which won't be needed any more because they may be outdated or old or anything? If yes, it is possible to remove these files or directories in this directory? Is there any tool, that can delete files, if they are not used any more?
Or do you have any other recommendation, what I can do?
It would be glad, if someone made already experience with this and can share it with me.
Thank you in advance. Bianca

bleachbit. But it won't help in the long term. Move some files to the other partition (e.g. Movies, Music) or resize your partitions from a live system using
lsblkto your question.
df -Thwould show the type & used & available size (human) of the mounted partitions
