> What about "Hidden files"

Best thing I could have ever done was put /home on a separate partition and 
set user and group quotas.  I also linked /var/mail to /home/mail.  So now I 
don't worry about disk usage any more.  When users call wondering why they 
can't send mail or transfer more crap to their folder I simply check their 
current usage through webmin and tell them they have to do some house 
cleaning.  Then it is their responsibility to keep things in order and I no 
longer have to play disk police.  

Have you asked this user what is in the folder?  If they say "nothing" then 
just can the user and reenter them.

This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by the Cotter Technology 
Department, and is believed to be clean.
