Windows 7: Incorrect "free of" Hard Drive Total Space

Incorrect "free of" Hard Drive Total Space

I mapped a few network drives to different shared folders on my EX485 with the inital 750GB drive installed. Since then, I have installed an additional 2x1TB. However, in Windows 7 it is showing 1.18TB free of 678GB, so it recognizes the correct free space, but is still showing the old HDD total. I've removed the mappings and readded and rebooted both my PC and WHS with no luck. Any suggestions? Thank You!

My network drive mappings never show the correct free space either. I just ignore it.

It's actually the opposite. The free space is accurate, it's the total space that is way off.

I have the same problem. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and an Lacie Networkspace2 NAS (2TB). although the free space shown is correct (1,94TB), the total disc capacity shown is incorrect (only 200GB)

Do you have partitions set on the NAS? If so it will only show the free space on that partition.

In addition the following command in CMD will show free space: "fsutil volume diskfree c:"
