    This looks like a hard drive problem

    Xubuntu 11.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop is telling me there is only .02 percent left on a 30 gig drive. Can't be. I have no video, about six photos and songs and a dozen documents. Only bare minimum of programs. Not long ago I had mucho space and it just disappeared overnight. Disk utility doesn't tell me much except that the disk is OK. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    I had a typo. It is a 30 gig drive.
    And now, suddenly, the little icon is saying "13.24/26.33 space left"
    I did nothing, not even reboot, except use the df query
    should i assume it is fixed?
