How about log files? I find log files at times can grow out of control, and having too many copies can also be a problem. This is usually linked with a buggy website which is producing lots of errors.
If you’re “error logs” for website(s) is growing large, it’s time to inspect it and fix the underlying issues.
That’s where logs related to websites live – both access and error along with any archived copies based on log rotation rules.
That’s generally where most other logs live.
Also if you’re running a WordPress website, be sure to inspect to see if it’s been hacked – many hacks populate the “public_html” and subdirectories with spammy content, your database with bogus content, or both.
Aside from that, it’s just a guessing game as you haven’t really told us a whole lot about your setup and where the files are growing.
