I have a small FAT32 partition on one of my HDDs, which PCC tells me is 14MB large (and which is what I remember setting it to when I partitioned the disk). From PCC:
DOS drive letter: C (just a guess)
Type: FAT32 (0xb)
Start: sector 63
Size: 14MB (0%), 30177 sectors
I checked with blkid that I'm referring to the correct disk:
[root@localhost ~]# /sbin/blkid
dev/sdb1: UUID="2853-8697" TYPE="vfat"
and then with df to get the size
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1 5160912K 1310972K 3849940K 26% /media/disk
As can be seen, there's a massive difference (PCC says 14MB, df says 5GB)
. Can anyone explain this, because it's seriously affecting one of my scripts. Is there any way of encouraging both utilities to correspond with their info?
I'm using mmxii, BTW. Thanks.
Edit: interestingly, have just noticed that System-monitor says the partition is 4.9GB.
