Free space gone from my disk :( How to get it back?

One day I have found that 400Gb of free space suddenly gone and I have "/proc" directory 128TiB large. I had ran:
diskscan -v -f -s seq /dev/sda1 > scan.log
But /proc still the same = 128TiB
Also my anti-virus software can not update for unknown reason
Please tell me how to get back my free space and fix errors on disk? The Dolphin said that this folder is 128TiB large but my HDD only 500Gb large. I have Linux Mint 17.2 KDE installed on single drive /dev/sda1 on single partition (/home root boot all in same).

Thank you!
