I have single partition of 92GB in which I installed Ubuntu 12.04. And for some Unknown reason a message pop ups saying that I only have 1GB of HDD space left.
I ran command sudo du -hscx * on / and /home
/home gave me this result
4.0K C:\nppdf32Log\debuglog.txt 0 convertedvideo.avi 176M Desktop 16K Documents 169M Downloads 4.0K examples.desktop 17M file.txt 4.0K Music 984K Pictures 4.0K Public 320K Red Hat 6.iso 2.5M syslog-ng_3.3.6.tar.gz 4.0K Templates 8.0K terminal.png 1.2M Thunderbird Attachments 698M ubuntu10.04LTS.iso 16K Ubuntu One 4.0K Untitled Folder 4.0K Videos 21G VirtualBox VMs 22G total
And / gave me this result

If you look at the result returned by / it shows that /home is consuming 81GB but on the other hand /home returns only 22GB.
I cant figure out whats consuming the HDD. I have not installed anything except Virtual Machines
