Ubuntu – After deleting files I do not get any more space on the hard drive and files are not in trash

deletetrash

I am deleting files from my filesystem because I am running out of space but I do not get any more free space after deleting them. I cannot locate these files and they are not in trash.
I do not know if that makes any difference but I have deleted some of these files being logged as root.

Any ideas ?

Yes it make all the difference because root has a separate trash.

To empty it you may paste this on terminal: gksudo nautilus '/root/.Trash/' to open the trash and then remove it's files.
