Hi canmese,

Were you able to fix you / partition filling up issue?  If not what you can do is move some stuff out of there and into your /home since you have 1+TB there.  A lot of people run into this issue not thinking about other files systems that grow quite large at times.  You can always move /var/lib/myql into something like /home/var_mysql.  That is if you have alot of databases.  Also make sure you check your /var/log directory for any old logs you can remove from there.  If you need instruction on moving /var/lib/mysql just let me know.  I do it all the time at work for customers.

Good luck!
