    Ext4 Free space problem

    I am having problem with the free space, i converted all my drives to ext4 from ntfs and there was about 30GB free space just disappeared when formatted it.. if i use partition manager, i get the right free size but with df -h i get
    [arps@hayate ~]$ df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    25G 16G 7.7G 67% /
    /dev/sda1 194M 22M 163M 12% /boot
    tmpfs 1008M 2.0M 1006M 1% /dev/shm
    /dev/sdc1 233G 178G 55G 77% /parts/zushio
    /dev/sda2 431G 83G 327G 21% /parts/misaka
    /dev/sdb3 917G 871G 100K 100% /parts/lucifer
    /dev/sdc1 is ntfs, sda2 and sdb3 are ext4 partitions. also when i try to write more data, it says "no space left on device"..
    it can be clearly seen that on sdb3, there is about 46GB loss and sda2 has about 21GB loss

    Is there any way i can claim the free space back...please help me out...


    oh yeah.. my specs just in case..

    Core 2 Due E6400
    2GB RAM
    Palit 1GB 9500GT nVidia Graphics Card
    Fedora Core 11
