my nc10 lappy running out of space

Hi there, I have a samsung nc10 with ubuntu 11.10 and today I had a message saying that I was running out of space. I have emptied my recycle bin and then run
df -h
This is the output:
antobbo@antobbo-NC10-ubuntu:~$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5              30G   19G  9.6G  66% /
udev                  996M  4.0K  996M   1% /dev
tmpfs                 401M  1.1M  400M   1% /run
none                  5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none                 1003M  368K 1002M   1% /run/shm
/dev/sda1             118G   65G   53G  56% /media/86EC60FAEC60E641
Now, I wonder which one is the main partition, where the files resides?

Your Ubuntu filesystem should be on sda5 as indicated by the root symbol "/", forward slash under "Mounted on". sda1 is under /media and looks like a windows partition and both seem to have a lot of space available.

Perhaps it is swap that is running low, check in /proc/meminfo

ok cool, wasn't sure which partition was the one, so ubuntu is on /dev/sda5. Can't quite remember the size of the hd, which I then assume is 118gb + 30gb. I should have given the ubuntu partition more space, but unfortunately when I installed I didn't know I would have used it as main OS as opposed to windows.
