Hello @yasirclam

As I can see that you’re running a WordPress site, I’ll recommend you make sure that you’re not running local backups with plugins like backupress or backupbuddy as this will “eat” the disk space out.

Also if you’re using a cache plugin the generated cache may consume a big chunk of the available disk space.

You can check this question that was previously asked in our community. Bobby’s answer is top notch
