I think I have found a reason for all this. YaST2 says my main partition 
(8GBytes) is running out of space (99%), about 15MB left. I can't remember 
loading more than 3GBytes onto the harddisk recently, however Linux has 
crashed several times in recent hours, so there seems to be loads of unused 

I remember especially that when trying to make a system backup onto a external 
USB disk the backup process halted while in the middle of writing onto the 
disk. Maybe due to a lost USB connection. So the mysterious gigabytes might 
very well be leftovers from the backup files.

From all this your must surely gather that I am new to Linux. Maybe you could 
help me with this: How do I find out about this data, so that I am able to 
delete the lot, and delete the right lot?
