Incorrect Hard Drive Space reported

Asked by Rydel on 2008-09-19

My computer running Hardy amd64 has two hard drives, an 80GB one with a 37GB partition mapped at / (The rest is a windows partition), and a 204 GB Drive, mapped as /storage. However, when I try to use the Disk Usage Analyzer or when a program tries to install in wine, it reports a total hard drive size as roughly 80 GB, but still includes data on my 2004GB drive towards total usage. As a result, I'm reaching a point where program won't install, especially in wine, claiming I don't have enough space, even though I have 200 GB free
fdisk -l gives the following information:

Disk /dev/sda: 203.9 GB, 203928109056 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24792 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 24791 199133676 83 Linux

Disk identifier: 0x00000000

   Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 * 1 3932 1006576 e W95 FAT16 (LBA)

with sda being the drive with / and windows, sdb being /storage, and sdc being a flash drive.
Any help correcting this issue would be greatly appreciated

I think you can configure wine to be able to recognize the 204 GB Drive

Open a terminal and type winecfg

[drives]

Drives mapping...

Hope this helps

Rydel (rydelfox) said : #2

Wine can already access the drive, and I already have it mapped. The problem doesn't seem to be in wine since Disk Usage Analyzer has the same problem

May be some already reported bugs for baobab....
