You'd better check what's in that 30GB folder first. Could be something important there...

Why have you got those extra home folders anyway ?

are they secondary accounts that you've set up for some reason ?

Are you the only user of this PC ?

I take it 'dimzev' is the primary account on this PC and has admin privileges ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
groups dimzev
and
Code: [Select]
groups dimpeper
and
Code: [Select]
groups dim2
and
Code: [Select]
groups dimint
and finally is this home partition one you've reused from other distros/versions .. ie. are the other homefolder subdirectories old leftovers ?

Yep that'll get rid of the 2 home folders (and contents) that don't belong to an active account.

If you wanna get rid of the 'dimpeper' account you're going to have to delete the account first in
Menu > Settings > Users and Groups

But be sure to check there's nothing in those folders you want to keep first.
