NAS542 Raid6 4x6TB - Volume1 used capacity much larger than actually stored

In Storage Manager Volume1 shows as healthy with a capacity of 10.82 TB, of which 9.98 TB is used.

But a DU command shows that only 2.0 TB of data is stored in my file system,

Where can the missing 8 TB be?

In CLI it looks like this:
BusyBox v1.19.4 (2021-04-01 13:06:33 CST) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

    Thanks Mijzelf!

    I followed the instructions to install Entware and busybox 1.33 and found where the spacehog was hidden. Not surprisingly it was in a recycle folder. I have previously tried to free up space by deleting files from the File Browser, but that has only moved them to the recycle bin. I have not found a way to empty the recycle bin from the web gui, so this solution helped me discover where the problem was.

    Thanks and regards,

    I just found the way to empty all recycle bins in Shared Folders in Control Panel.
