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.

An expert is someone who knows some of the worst mistakes that can be
made in his subject and how to avoid them.
