    When I check used disk space in putty using df -h it says I have used 11GB while I am sure I only have 8GB worth of downloaded files!!
    Anyone knows where the lost space is?

    ftp takes a lot of time to check it, but i think the system file takes some space and it's really not 20GB to start with, more like 18.x something
    so I guess you end up with 16-17GB

    A little under 1gb will be taken by the OS, plus a little under 1gb for overhead of the ext3 filesystem. (other filesystems like xfs typically have less overhead, but grub doesn't like them).

    1KB is not 1,000 its 1,024
    1MB is not 1,000,000 its 1,048,576
    1GB is not 1,000,000,000 its 1,073,741,824

    so 20GB is 1,073,741,824 * 20 = 21,474,836,480

    But they are not giving you 21.4 GBs they are giving you 20 so..

    20,000,000,000 / 1,073,741,824 = 18.6GB

    So people should really think about this before getting leeware. 20GB is really small let alone 16GB.
