Hi folks, I'm a forum veteran elsewhere but this is my first post on LQ!
Let me ask if someone could explain something that's puzzled me for a long time. I've got an ext3 volume on my home fileserver that reports numbers under "df -hT" which don't add up. For example...
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 ext3 912G 398G 468G 46% /
According to df, this volume has a total size of 912GB, which should correspond to the sum of used and available space. But 398GB + 468GB = 866GB.
Where did the other 46GB go?
That's a heck of a lot of space to go missing for no apparent reason!
