Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sounds like you are using archivelog mode and your system is creating archive logs.and that will chew up disk space like no tomorrow.

    Some guesses are archive logs, core dump files, or data files may take space !.

    Archive log mode is when the database creates a backup for all transactions. If in a production environment is is HIGHLY recommended to do this. Run the command I suggested to see if you are in archive log mode, it also show you where the archives are being created.
