HELP: rysnc filled my partition during backup.

Hope someome could help me.

I have two partitions: /home and /(root excluding home).

I was backing up /home to an external HDD with rsync, which failed because it ran out of disk space, and now my / partition is 99% full, even after reboot.

I understand rsysnc creates a temporary copy during its operation, but where does it exist so I can deleted it!

Thanks, and hope someone can help.

OK found it, in /root/Client (I was running rsync as root).
