Jeff,

thx for the reply. Unfortunately I have not used scripts and crontab so far. If you can give additional help I would truly appreciate it.
 
most of my space seems to have been taken by the antivirus and cache /var/amavis   /var/log/cache

thankx for all the help

Mircea;

I will assume that you are used to writing scripts and using crontab; if
not let me know and I'll help you write a script.

Write a script that uses df -h to return the free space on the hard
drive, test the value to see if you have met the threshold of less than
1 Gb of free space; if it has run the sub routine below,

find /directory/where/your/files/are -type f -mtime +30 -exec rm '{}' \;

if it is still within the threshold value use the script to exit because
it has nothing to do.

run this as a crontab once a day at a time period where the load is
typically the lowest. This script if written properly uses very few
system resources.

Hope this helps
