This is one area where the CLI can do things that GUI cannot.

Try commands like "du", "df" and the options for "ls" like "-a" and "-s".

I'd also check to see if your 'mount' operations are hiding files.
For example, a mount of a /tmp/ file system - which is normally a good
thing for various reasons, may hide temporary files created in the boot
sequence (or for some other reason) before the /tmp/ was mounted.


Remember, if you have copied a sparse file with some tools it may have
created the previously absent blocks.
