 If you pull cp2k from github right now it will only take about ~2Gb. You 
can delete things like test files if you really need to clear space but 
thats not where most of the 30Gb is coming from. I just checked the build 
folders on my machine and found:

libint ~ .25Gb
libxc ~ .5Gb
libxsmm ~ 70Mb

These are the sort of 'standard' libraries to build with cp2k and they are 
nowhere near 30Gb. The only thing I can surmise is that you installed 
*absolutely everything* related to cp2k including intel and gnu packages 
and cuda and what not. Some of this stuff should definitely be stored in 
the common software by your HPC team and not be needed. If it really is 
impossible for you to access them, then you should contact the admins.
