Wrong Size of free disk space

Hey there..Ive just finished configuring my fileserver using debian..the strange thing is that I copied some stuff to the server and when I tried adding more it is complaining that there is no more free disk space..all of the files on the system are 7 gigs and my files are 5 gigs and the Hard Disk is 20 gigs ..any ideas ?

What filesystem (ext2, ext3, reiser, ...) are you using ?
What returns "df" on the target directory ?
