i have rented a server. after i have got my account and password  i transferred my files to  it. they are :

[WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$ ls -Shlr
total 22G

[WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$

once i cat my files and it showed  cat: write error: No space left on device . then i realized i still did not know how much storage space i have given. then i typed this:
[WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3       167G  154G  4.2G  98% /
tmpfs          1010G   72K 1010G   1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1       485M   41M  420M   9% /boot
/dev/sdb1       1.1T   97G 1016G   9% /data
/dev/sdc1        26T  2.7T   23T  11% /ds5020
[WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$

i am still new to Linux guys.

so my question here are:

the files i have transferred only is 21G , why it showed 154G is used? where is the other 133G space?

what is the other lines meaning for $ df -h commend above?

is it really the available space left now is only 4.2G? if so the files generated during the analysis could be more than 100G , then 4.2 G wont be merely enough for me ?

 please, i really need some advice here?!!!!!!
