    /usr should mostly contain configuration files and the binary executables for programs. The only way to reduce the size for the most part is to uninstall unnecessary software.

    However, you also have this /usr/local/psa, which is something created by this automated web hosting software, Plesk, right?

    I'm not familiar with the software, but it seems to be what's filling your disks so rapidly. I would guess something is configured improperly. It's commercial software, does the company offer customer support?

    It depends what is on the other drive. What are the top-level directories on that file system, and where is it mounted?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Please don't hijack other people's threads. You should start new threads for your questions. But you can use gparted from a live CD to resize your partitions.

    I googled around and there seems to be a number of people suffering from some weirdness with Plesk's backup filling up disk space. Might be your problem.
