File manager shows inaccurate partition size.
I have bought a 100 gb usb mass storage hdd and managed to partition format label mount and add it to /etc/fstab and the results of df -h is correct as follows

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 9.8G 5.1G 4.8G 52% /
tmpfs 122M 0 122M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3 18G 4.8G 14G 27% /disks/C
/dev/sda9 15G 33M 15G 1% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition9
/dev/sda8 9.7G 1.9G 7.3G 21% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition8
/dev/sda7 9.7G 33M 9.1G 1% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition7
/dev/sda6 9.7G 33M 9.1G 1% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition6
/dev/sda5 9.7G 33M 9.1G 1% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition5
/dev/sda3 9.7G 33M 9.1G 1% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition3
/dev/sda2 9.7G 33M 9.1G 1% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition2
/dev/sda1 9.7G 33M 9.1G 1% /var/autofs/zip.1/zip.1/partition1

However when i open the file manager it shows all the partitions as files and says the total available space is 14.01 gb and I know this is wrong......I copied a file 1.9 gigs in size to one of the partitions and the file manager still shows 14.01 gb can I correct this?
