    my disk usage always increase 1% everyday till now 95%. why?
    and how can I reduce.

  • You're obviously not running your 'du' command from root. Try the following:

    du -hd1 /

    This will give you an idea of where the space issue is occurring. My bet is /var/log, although you haven't said whether you have any packages installed (NTop can use up disk space quite quickly depending on traffic volumes).
