Unusual partition

    I am still having trouble with rsync and it leads to this. I have a 
partition I am back up to that is /dev/sda1 which is a SATA hard drive. 
The partition is only 3.5 Gb by intention. It should be large enough. 
But now this.

    When I do a "df" I find 3% of the partition is used up by something:

/dev/sda1              3557744     72672   3304344   3% /mnt

The lost at found is 26K.

Why are these things already in the partition right after a format?
