RE: [seul-edu] File Space on a Samba Server
I am using the version of Samba that came with Redhat 6.0. When I right
clicked/properties on a mapped drive, I think what is being returned is all
the used space in the whole hard drive partition and all the free space in
the whole partition.
About the only suggestion I can offer is to have each user create a
directory and allocate all files and directories under this "root
equivalent" directory. When right clicking/properties on this directory, I
think the space utilization will be correct.

Well, I am at school now and right clicking on the mapped sharename gives me
incorrect directory size ...
Maybe I will try to upgrade like Kevin suggested. Before I do so, has anyone
tried this on a newer version of samba (I am running 1.9.18p10 --- see
