    I highly recommend Bleachbit 100% of the time. True, other programs exist for secure deletion (both OSS and proprietary), but I like Bleachbit over all other programs.

    Please I need your help. I really don't know what is happening.
    I was using TestDisk and my disk is now full 99%.
    I have no idea why and how to get my disk space free.

    I cannot do anything because the disk is full and I don't see any file to delete.

    EDIT : I finally found a huge file and I deleted it. Problem solved.

    If you have this problem again, or if someone else has this problem, the "du" command can help the user find the issue by displaying the sizes of directories and files. I use "du -hx -d 1" to see the size of the directories in my current directory and I track the issue from there.

    What if users can have better option in recovering deleted files from Linux system (EXT1, EXT3 etc.) using GUI based Linux recovery tool. I'd like to suggest one and strongly believe that it may help for someone who needs it:

    Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery (Google the term)

    P.S. This tool will work only on Windows system. So you've to remove the problem storage media and connect it to your PC.

    Don't forget to post your opinion about the same.
