I guess RECLAIM STORAGE looks like the way to go. What happened was the
journal part that was being restored from tape never fully got restored. The
journal was almost 3 gig which did not fit on the hard drive so, it looks
like all this space is occupied yet there is not a journal by that name on
the system that matches the journal on the tape. In other words, (my
theroy)if a file or journal never gets fully restored than the AS400 does
not list it as an object to look at. If I do a WRKJRN *all *all I do not see
this jounal. So I end up with almost 3 gig of data on the hard drive with no
access path.
        I ran RECLAIM STORAGE a couple of months ago, which is fine for how
the systme is utlized at this site. Guess what I was looking for was a
method to find and delete lost objects.

When was the last time someone ran RECLAIM STORAGE?  
That might free up some area (after you clean up the lost objects)
