"df -i" will tell you if you're out of inodes.

Regarding where your space went, if it's not reboot-persistent then it was 
probably a deleted file that some process still had open (use lsof or fuser 
commands to dig deeper). If it is reboot persistent then two possibilities 
are corrupt filesystem (run fsck) or data left "under" mount-points (unmount 
to find out..).

good luck,
