Like the title says; As soon as I delete something (from my filesystem, home folder or any folder for that matter), the space immidately gets filled with data and my availble/free disk space goes back to 0 bytes IMMIDATELY!!
When I run Disk Usage Analyzer, it says:
But if I run 'df' in terminal:
Total Filesystem capacity: 620.6gb
(used: 497.4 GB available: 123.3 GB)
(/dev/sdb2/ is Windows 7 partition | /dev/sdb6 is Ubuntu 12.04)

I have deleted the ~/.xsession-error file (was close to 200gb), and created an ~/.xsession-error/ folder so that isnt what is taking up space. Its working as planned, and consistant at 0bytes.
I have ran in terminal:
to remove unwanted packages, old files, and the apt-get cache - still no luck.
sudo apt-get autoremove && apt-get autoclean && apt-get clean
I have ran Computer Janitor, the list is clear - nothing left to remove.
I have deleted all the files & folders in ~/tmp/ - no help...
I have gone through the ~/.cache/ folder and deleted any programs that no longer exist.
I installed and ran (as root) bleachbit TWICE, again not helping.. whatever space gets opened up - it immidately gets filled back in with something!
Disk Usage Analyzer is no help, it shows which folders are taking up the most space, but obviously the /home/ folder is at the top.. I have already gone through the hidden files/folders in the /home/ and deleted unwanted/large files.
I cant figure out WTF is running in the background that is taking up so much freaking space! I was going to just say F it and fresh install; but i cant even keep enough space open long enough to download the fresh install file off of ubuntu.com
Can someone throw me a bone here and help! I dont know what else I can do... im loosing my mind here!
