    God Bless!

    I don't really know is used to say that you are not certain about something,
    e.g I don't really know what he's up to. I haven't heard from him for ages.

    I really don't know is used to say that you definitely do not know something, especially when someone has asked you about it, e.g I can't answer that, I really don't know.
