Hi group

I installed ubuntu in my laptop a few days ago. Yesterday, trying to
duplicate a data folder in the user folder (/home/user) the process stopped.
The result is that the free sizes of filesystems do not coincide according
to where I look them up:

With the command df in the console:
Filesystem        Blocks   1K     Used         Free      %Used  Mounted on
/dev/hda2             45358532  24290660  18763752     57%      /

That is, approx 24 GB used and 18 GB free.

Looking at partitions in GParted the quantities are equivalent.
BUT, using the disk analyzer included in feisty, quantities are only of 14
GB used!! This last number is much more real as far as I can estimate. The
difference between 14 and the previous 24 GB is more or less the size of the
folder duplicated. So I suppose data has been somehow corrupted and there
they are, lost...

I have forced a filesystem check in boot, using tune2fs, which has given no
errors, and everything is still the same as before.

I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 herd 5, in a laptop Compaq Presario R4000 with
processor AMD Athlon 64 +3200, 1 GB RAM and 80 GB HDD. Dual boot (grub) with

¿What else can i do to free those 10 GB?

Thanks in advance for your help.
