/var/log/asterisk total 746M
/var/spool/asterisk/backup total 4K
/var/spool/asterisk/monitor total 0
/var/lib/asterisk/backups no such directory
/var/spool/asterisk/backup/Default_backup total 7.7GB

then du the last directory listed the same way

du -hx --max-depth 1 /var|sort -h

du -hx --max-depth 1 /var/log|sort -h
