Definitely take a look at the /usr/home directory like Mehul stated. Try 
something like this to get a list of large files in that file system:

find /usr -type f -size +50M -exec ls -la {} \;


find /usr/home -type f -size +50M -exec ls -la {} \;

The above commands will print out a list of files above 50 Megs.

Also, you might have large log files lying around the file system taking 
up space.
