Missing disk space - digital_insanity - 02-06-2016

Hello all, looks like I am stuck trying to figure out how to fix my missing space..
I am running, openelec 6.0.98-fritsch, after mounting smb share to Videos I noticed that all the files in Videos folder are missing and on /dev/sda2/ usage is high like I still have those videos stored. Not sure why, but I deleted the Lost+Found folder and I believe that was mistake by me. Is there a way to fix this, I am not interested in recovering files just the data space.

Code:
OpenELEC:~ # df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
devtmpfs 2902396 156884 2745512 5% /dev
/dev/sda1 247540 164436 83104 66% /flash
/dev/sda2 30384072 18721228 11646460 62% /storage
/dev/loop0 156928 156928 0 100% /
tmpfs 2905196 0 2905196 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 2905196 6092 2899104 0% /run
tmpfs 2905196 0 2905196 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs 2905196 1348 2903848 0% /var
tmpfs 2905196 20 2905176 0% /tmp
//192.168.1.253/Movies
957290140 822415372 134874768 86% /storage/videos
//192.168.1.253/TVseries
957290140 822415372 134874768 86% /storage/tvshows
IN /sda2/ should be around 29GB free.

Do you notice something? Dismount those shares and the original contents of the folders should be available again. You can't combine folder contents by mounting them in the same spot.

As for the lost+found folder: http://serverfault.com/questions/6753/what-happens-if-i-delete-lostfound next time use google yourself.

Ok, I will try unmonting network shares and check the folder for the files that are missing.
I did google that and I also did read that search you posted. So, that lost+ found should be created at startup but it did not. If i try to run fsck it needs sda2 to be unmounted. Anyway I am not that good with linux, but trying to learn.
If I unmonut sda2 will I loose all files that are on sda2?
Thank you for pointers and help I will try all this as soon as I get home later today.

Unmounted and of course you were right. All the files that were taking the space were still there. Deleted files remounted share problem solved! Thank you again for help!');
