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
Disk identifier: 0xbe438622

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

Disk identifier: 0x00000000

/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 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....

Hope this helps

Can you help with this problem?
