What commands?  I suggested that you look for deleted but open files using:
# ls -l /proc/*/fd/* | grep '(deleted)'

If you see any, you won't see their size.  All you'll really see is the 
PID of the process that has the files open, and in that case, you must 
terminate that process.

Do you see deleted files when you run the command above?
