That's a really weird partition table for /dev/sdb. It's bizzare that it starts at 4, and that it's 'extended' means it's not even intended to have a filesystem inside it, just other partitions.

I don't think adding a new disk is going to help solve your / being 99% full, anyway. Did you ever find the huge file from your other thread?
