Restarted my machine and I when the client started up I got a 11DbException NOT ENOUGH SPACE error so I deleted everything except wallet.dat and the client start back up displaying all transactions but my balance is at zero, is it because it has to redo the block count or have I lost the measly amount of bitcoins I worked so hard for?

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

The block chain needs to update if it is still doing so.

You need to download the blocks again so you can see your coins.

Run the client with the -rescan parameter. That will take a while. The balance isn't stored in the wallet, it's in the blockchain. Your wallet is basically the authorization to redeem the coins.
