    Can somebody explain what is going on? I deleted some log files and I could decrease the occupied space but look:

    du -h --max-depth=1 /usr
    8.0K /usr/games
    12K /usr/etc
    13M /usr/libexec
    8.0K /usr/X11R6
    125M /usr/bin
    500M /usr/lib
    1.7M /usr/kerberos
    1.8G /usr/local
    116K /usr/man
    26M /usr/include
    16K /usr/lost+found
    68K /usr/src
    89M /usr/sbin
    609M /usr/share
    3.1G /usr


    According to this /usr is 3.1GB now when I check with df command I got

    /dev/sda3 29753588 20163088 8054688 72% /usr

    /usr partition has asigned 29GB and is telling me that is using 20GB ??? where are those other 17gb coming from??

    Thanks

    If apache still had the deleted files open then they would still count towards the disk usage.
