rootfs is running out of space fast

I just start using Fedora again after about 2 years. I just did a fresh install and only after two days of using it I was slapped with a low space error. I thought maybe it was a bad install so I re-installed Fedora 16 and already after a few hours it is jumping back up quickly. When I run the df -h command this is what I get:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on rootfs 50G 12G 36G 26% / devtmpfs 461M 0 461M 0% /dev tmpfs 469M 368K 469M 1% /dev/shm tmpfs 469M 41M 428M 9% /run /dev/mapper/vg_server-lv_root 50G 12G 36G 26% / tmpfs 469M 41M 428M 9% /run tmpfs 469M 0 469M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs 469M 0 469M 0% /media /dev/sda2 497M 69M 404M 15% /boot /dev/mapper/vg_server-lv_home 134G 2.3G 125G 2% /home

Is there anyway to clear it out or remount to another drive... anything? I don't want to have to re-install my system every other day.
