"zfs list" and "df" differs???

First I do "zfs list" onto TempStorage/Backup which reports 800GB. This is correct.

Then I do "df -h" which reports only 180GB, which is not correct. It should be 800GB of data, but "df" reports only 180GB. This means 620GB is gone. Where is it? I know there is 620GB worth of data, which I can not access. Where is my data, and how can I access it?

root@solaris:/mnt/TempStorage/Stuff# zfs list
TempStorage 916G 45,1G 37,3G /mnt/TempStorage
TempStorage/Backup 799G 45,1G 177G /mnt/TempStorage/Backup <-------- OBS! 800GB!
TempStorage/EmmasFolder 78,6G 45,1G 78,6G /mnt/TempStorage/EmmasFolder
TempStorage/Stuff 1,08G 45,1G 1,08G /mnt/TempStorage/Stuff

root@solaris:/mnt/TempStorage/Stuff# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
TempStorage 83G 38G 46G 46% /mnt/TempStorage
TempStorage/Backup 223G 178G 46G 80% /mnt/TempStorage/Backup <------ only 200GB!!!
124G 79G 46G 64% /mnt/TempStorage/EmmasFolder
TempStorage/Stuff 47G 1,1G 46G 3% /mnt/TempStorage/Stuff

Ok, I had a snapshot that ate all space. I destroyed the snapshot and everything was correct.

# zfs list -t all
lists all snapshots.
