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 W7 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:"

Townshend: Have you restarted the server/NAS Box? Followed by your PC.

"The Case of the Disappearing Hard Drive Space"
There I was, sitting in a cold dark room, nothing but me and that hunk of metal I call Dolores, doing her Win 7 Pro computing thing. Then I notice, something amiss. Her C: drive, an SSD, with no restore points set, no pagefile.sys, is down to 24.3 GB open. That's okay. But then later in the day,...

Missing Hard Drive Space (besides the "standard 7%")
Hi, I recently bought an Asus 1215n netbook from Amazon with a 250gb hard drive. However, when I check the actual capacity I only see 1 partition with 100gb and another partition with 117gb. I know you "lose" 7gb per each 100gb, but that means I should at least have 232,5 usable gigabytes...
