That sounds like your network failed during backup, which caused the target volume to vanish. SD! wasn't told by the system it happened, so it kept backing up to the directory it was backing up to... which was then local. ("Mount points" in OSX look just like folders to SD!.)

So, I think if you look in /Volumes (use "Go to folder"), it's likely you'll find a folder there named the same as your backup target, with files in it. (Make sure you don't have the backup volume attached when you check this.) If so, remove the folder and empty your trash -- that's where the space is.

The only way to "fix" this is to improve the reliability of your source or destination networking... (and for OSX to fix the problem where it drops a volume but doesn't tell us it happened with an error...)
