Is there any way to see whats taking up so much storage space under “root”?

Thank you!

du -h ~root
will give you directories

to give you files (but it will be a long list!)

maybe the OP wants to know what total files are owned by root so

find / -user root > root_files.txt

This creates a text file you can read through it or cat & grep it, but I guess the OP just wants the contents of the root’s ‘home’ directory (/root) TBF my root directory is really big (by design) and I get loads of entries from the find command

Thanks jimr1 for correcting my vague spur of the moment suggestion. I would use du first to find the biggest directory then find to see if anything more specific
