pup_rw is 390MB in GDmap, and according to the personal storage icon I have 612MB => 1GB together. So it is right. But on Sunday, I had 730 MB free space.
I can not imagine what would have been downloaded or installed.

Ok well in that case are there large files showing in gdmap that seem unwanted.... you could examine the dates by looking at the actual file properties in rox

In a terminal

find / -type f -size +100M -ls

might provide a clue if its a single large file or not

Under Slacko 5.7 (jwm) I deleted /root/.Trash (that's in the savefile space) and created a /mnt/home/.Trash directory (outside of savefile space, where all of the SFS's are kept) and then used ROX to drag that directory to my home directory and created a absolute link.

That way all 'trashed' files don't fill up savefile space.

I have done that job with trash, but it's always free, I always choose to delete files

I attached a so called "CSI" diary created to monitor the changes of my savefile.

removing that trash icon has the side effect of the icon re aligning script uses it for reference... good move lol

I did make a cludgy version that does not but its not the best.

that behavior of Trash felt non-intuitive to me too.
I did not expect it to act that way. Wink
