Running Ubuntu 10.04 and nearly all my drive space is gone.

# df -h
Filesystem            Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                      7.3G  6.6G  327M  96% /
none                  245M  240K  244M   1% /dev
none                  249M     0  249M   0% /dev/shm
none                  249M  340K  249M   1% /var/run
none                  249M     0  249M   0% /var/lock
none                  249M     0  249M   0% /lib/init/rw
/dev/sda1             228M   34M  183M  16% /boot

Of course it's not mounted. I read that chmod 0 /sbin/debugfs could fix the problem, but now it just won't mount despite changing the permission to 777. This is a VM running on VirtualBox. I have done a file system check which ran fine.

What is this directory and how can I remove it from the system?


It's not using "real" disk space, don't worry about it. If something is using your disk, use the bundled "disk usage analyzer" to track it down
