unburden-home-dir - unburdens home directories from caches and trashes
unburden-home-dir [ -n | -u | -f filter ] unburden-home-dir ( -h | --help | --version )
unburden-home-dir unburdens the home directory from files and directory which cause high I/O or disk usage but are neither important if they are lost, e.g. caches or trash directory. When being run it moves the files and directories given in the configuration file to a location outside the home directory, e.g. /tmp or /scratch, and puts appropriate symbolic links in the home directory instead.
-b use the given string as basename instead of "unburden-home-dir". -c read an additional configuration file. -C read only the given configuration file -f just unburden those directory matched by the given filter (a perl regular expression) - it matches the already unburdened directories if used together with -u. -F Do not check for files in use with lsof before (re)moving files. -l read an additional list file -L read only the given list file -n dry run (show what would be done) -u undo (reverse the functionality and put stuff back into the home directory) -h, --help show this help --version show the program´s version

Of, course, du(1) can help you to find potential files or directories to handle by unburden-home-dir, but there are quite some du(1)-like tools out there which are way more comfortable, e.g. ncdu(1) (text-mode), baobab(1) (GNOME), filelight(1) (KDE), xdiskusage(1) (X tool calling du(1) itself), or xdu(1) (X tool reading du(1) output from STDIN).
