Disk Free space being incorrectly reported

linux:/mnt # df -h /dev/hdd
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 167G 130G 29G 82% /
If you see above, I'm using 66G but df reads it as 130G.
The same anomaly is occuring on my /dev/hda to the extent that I can't copy files over to that drive, and I KNOW there's plenty of room.
Is there some sort of cleanup I can run. I have moved large files, in excess of 40G back and forth between these drives and I've got the funny feeling that Suse is not cleaning up after the moves. FYI, I use dd to move files, not cp, and then I delete the original. And yes, I am sure that the Trash is empty.
Anyone have any ideas?
TIA for any pointers....
