    You could also look for a file of ~11GB, see if one matches. This is case it was a hard link. The lsof idea may actually be the winner here

    find / -size +11G

    I'm actually having a really similar problem. We have multiple computers running on the same network. Each user has a home directory that is located on the computer that they work out, but the home directories of each computer are mounted on every other computer on the network. Thus each user can be on any computer and still access their files. The problem I'm having is that I removed a couple of users and their home directories however there is no change in disk space using df -h after the removal.

    Any suggestions?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Simple. If ANYONE has that directory, any sub-directory, or file in that tree open, then the OS will not physically remove the data UNTIL ALL currently accessing programs either terminate, close the offending files, or navigate out of that directory tree. Doing a clean shutdown and reboot of the system should recover the space, however.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
