HDD space vanishes

A few days ago i went to download something and was prompted that i didn't have enough hdd space. i was shocked to see i have 80mb of space on my 1tb external, i cleared 20gb of space and left it. the next day i had 80mb free again. this is a problem as my server backs up the main data partition to this hdd.

I just ran Disk Inventory X, and it shows 711.9gb used, so thats almost 300gb that has just vanished.

anyone have any ideas?

thanks in advance
