    Missing HD Space

    I seem to be having 150 GB just gone. The partition size is no where near what the system is reporting (e.g, shown and nautilus)

    Won't let me post a URL...

    Any ideas?

    df -h

    Partition table entries are not in disk order
    It is a 500GB Hard drive.

    This command tells you the amount of free space on all mounted file systems,
    or you can specify the name of a device you want to check, (the device has
    to be mounted, though).
    I expect you do not have your windows partitions mounted so they don't show. You can get information by googling df command.

    Yes i know. Look at the image, it shows GParted. The problem is the root filesystem is supposed to be about 256 GB, according to GParted this is the partition size. Everything is reporting about 110 though, and GParted shows the difference as used.
