pls reboot the machine & check the size of home directory.

Some other process is holding the file opened, which is why it is not showing as moved/deleted. You may need to kill/stop that process and see if the information gets updated.

It’s interesting to find out if the disk usage has doubled due to the file being present in / and still shown as active in /home. Also is the “/home/” directory mounted on separate disk?

THanks a lot… It’s has been freed by killing the service… :slight_smile:
