Xenserver not showing correct storage availability

I am running Xenserver 5.6 and I have about 1.2 TB total of storage capacity.  I have 2 VM's running on the server.  One is 130GB and the other is 500GB.  I should have about 500GB left in storage for another VM but Xenserver is showing capacity as full.  I went ahead and deleted some snapshots that were in the local storage but I still don't see the correct storage capacity.  Is there anywhere else I should be looking for used storage space?

You should be able to view the storage pool from XenCenter and it will tell you if there are other unused virtual disks etc on the drive.

I use xencenter for all xenserver activity.  That is where the snapshots were deleted from.   The storage pool states 1104GB used of 1107GB (571GB allocated)

Storage pool is only showing 2 VMs with total being 570GB for both
