Start by finding out where your space has gone by running (as root) du -m -x -d 1 / then repeat that same command and change '/' to the largest listed directory then keep repeating that process until you reach the bottom directory containing all the space. Depending on what directory that is, the solution will vary. If it's /tmp for example then look at what is taking all the space and delete anything that is not required. If it's log files under /var/log then you may delete some of those safely but if the files are in use by a running process then the space they occupy will not be freed up until that process ends (restart it maybe?).
