Ubuntu Reporting My Hard Drive Is Full

I am running Ubuntu 12.04, I have a 1TB drive with 80 gigabytes partitioned for the operation system. I don't store anything else on this partiton,the rest of the job is for storage. Tonight I started getting popups telling me I am running out of space. I looked at the drive with several different tools and they all show different results. If anyone can tell me how to fix the issue other that reformatting and reinstalling I would appreciate it.

Have you installed any apps, moved any data or installed any updates lately?

I install the update as they are offered so if I didn't get any today I am sure I did yesterday. As for today the only thing I have done hard drive related was I used Gparted to partition and format a flash drive to make a multipass drive. I don't see how that would have anything to do with the root drive. Unless I really messed up somehow. Did you notice in the properties picture it reads the drive is 140.t terabytes? Something isn't being reported right.

That's strange may be a bug in the software.

Or a bad HDD reporting errors. I would run a fsck and if dual booting windows also a chkdsk on the NTFS partition. somthing sounds like hte partition is corrupt or bad disk sectors, and rebooting, it might have done an fsck on boot and fixed itself.
