This question already has an answer here:
can somebody please explain to me how is this possible?
df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/md2 204G 170G 24G 88% / du -ah / | sort -rh | head -20 121G / 88G /var
So, essentially my / folder is 121GB large (running all as the root user), but my hard drive is 170GB full?
Running the Ubuntu 12.04.
