Space Keeps Dissapearing on my server

Space, on my server, keeps dissapearing. Could there be some file that is growing without bound? So far I've lost 10 MB vs a few hours ago. This is very annoying, especially since it's running on an old computer and there isn't much space to be wasting on random growing files.

Sounds like a log is running rampant. Unless you're actually storing something in /var it shouldn't be 1.3G. Check there for a likely cuplrit.
