Df not updating after delete

If you created a copy of a file by using the Send To command and you did not choose to be prompted for updates, this copy cannot receive updates from the source file.You can change this setting and make the copy available for updates. After a short period of time, the 'df' reappears. It appears that some of the work continues in the background. In future, use fuser or lsof to find out what process has the file open before you delete it. Note the "-n" -- it's very important, because without it, the filesystem might be opened for writing. I used lsof to check, no process hold the deleted files. If a file is opened for write or update by a process and you delete it, the disk blocks it allocated will not be returned to the available disk space until that process is halted or it closes the file. Another way, if you really need to know, is to run "fsck -n" on the device for the filesystem.
