    Watch out there is a difference between the /home directory (or partition) and the /home/user/ directory. Mar 23, 2011 at 14:41

The correct usage is the one you see in GParted. According to the properties window, some contents are unreadable. It is also likely that there are symlinks, hidden folders, backup files, etc - giving the varied readings in Disk Usage Analyzer and Folder Properties.
