Ok From the info I would say /var is under the /dev/hdc10 partition. This is where logs are kept. /var/logs/. Some may be large and need editted out. Also if using some kind of updating tool then maybe you are saving the update files as well. To see where the largest directories use a command like this ' du -k | sort -n ' at the root of the drive.
