Why is there a discrepancy in disk usage reported by df and du?
df says 8.9G used by the partition mounted in
:~$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 227G 8.9G 207G 5% /
/ yields a much smaller number.
:~# du -chs / 5.5G / 5.5G total
I was expecting a smaller number, but why is to so much smaller?
