So I have a partition that I use to backup/store things. This partition worked correctly since I installed 14.04 with no problems.
Now all of a sudden I am gettting errors saying I am running out of disk space (not likely '/' = 25gb '/home' = 50gb) and they are lightly used (a few gb's at the most)
The problem I found is that one of my partitions is having mounting issues and somehow being calculated as part of the root drive.
If I try to unmount that drive in nautilus, I get...
Error unmounting /dev/sda7: Command-line `umount "/media/jeff/52244CCF244CB82D"' exited with non-zero exit status 1: umount: /media/jeff/52244CCF244CB82D: not mounted
I have no idea what could be causing this or when it actually started. Any ideas?

WHAT I THINK IS HAPPENING...
- Something happened that caused an error with the mounted drive
- it is now being prevented from doing anything, in a sort of locked state
- When I go into nautilus and click on the drive itself, it mounts itself with a '1' appended to the end of the drive. If I go to /media/jeff I see both drives, one with an x over it, that is empty, ...and one that is normal.
- If I go to the terminal and try to mount/unmount the '+1' drive it works
- If I go to terminal and try to mount/unmount the drive with the 'x' it fails
So it is sort of stuck somehow and it is also jamming up my root drive space somehow. What would happen if I just did '$ sudo rm /media/jeff/stuckdrive'?
