I started deleting GBs of stuff from:

Where has ~37GB disappeared to? There are no files held open and I
have successfully umounted and re-mounted the partition - what is
That "du -s -BG 20180216/phil/*" is ignoring any "dot"
files/directories under 20180216/phil .
It's better to leave out the "-s" option and use the "--max-depth"
option to limit the depth of the display.
du -BG --max-depth=1 20180216/phil
Damn, I should have thought of that - normally, outside of .config,
there would not be much in my dot dirs - but I had been experimenting
with cryptocurrency nodes . .
Thanks for the useful tips!
