Somedays ago I was trying to open some file. It shown some error like 'Can't Read the File'. I ignored this completely. Then Today to see what has happened I restarted my system. To my astonishment all the files in the Downloads files were deleted.

Then naturally I checked for the HDD Space and it shown some 5 GB space which was before when all the files were not deleted. Now it showing no space at all.

What's happening with the system. I use Ubuntu 13.04.


I run the 'df' command on my system, i am getting the following output.

Filesystem       Inodes   IUsed    IFree IUse% Mounted on
