I earlier created a back up and stored it in the home directory
After the backup was created(back up was of 30 mb) i downloaded it and then deleted it
So i was expecting this much space to be freed but instead it moved somewhere(i don`t know where)and disk space usage shows it by writing others 30.14MB(LAST LINE OF THE STATS)
How can i free this space as i m not able to find where dis other thing is,

Also i`ve created another backup now(28 MB)(see the 1st line of stats)
and i`m not sure wheather i shud delete it or not(have downloaded it)

Home (not in a subdirectory) 28.21 MB
Home/etc 0.03 MB
Home/mail 0.18 MB
Home/perl 0.00 MB
Home/php 0.07 MB
Home/public_ftp 0.00 MB
Home/public_html 72.50 MB
Home/tmp 1.70 MB
Home/(other subdirectories) 4.77 MB
MySQL 0.40 MB
Other 30.14 MB
Total 138.01 MB
