I use a partition for backup and this partition is mounted at /mnt/backup. 
Once upon a time the backup run before the partition was mounted and the data 
were in the root written. When i looked were my space on root was gone, the 
folder /mnt/backup was invisibel because of the mounted backup-partition.

Is there a tool to find these invisible folders ore these lost space?
