I am trying to do the standard USB drive become a netdrive with samba.  I got samba working perfect. I finally got the vfat drive mounted with the correct permissions.

My problem is that my 360 gig drive is 69% used and is reporting to Windows and OSX that it's got only 260meg free.  How do I fix the correct size to other computers?  in the plug everything looks fine.

What the heck is reporting wrong?  Who has turned their plug into a ethernet drive and stuck with vfat so they dont have to format the drive and make it useless to windows machines?

Linux side sees it right....

root@debian:~# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs                507M  244M  264M  49% /
tmpfs                 252M     0  252M   0% /lib/init/rw
varrun                252M  368K  252M   1% /var/run
varlock               252M     0  252M   0% /var/lock
udev                  252M   16K  252M   1% /dev
tmpfs                 252M     0  252M   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs                 252M     0  252M   0% /var/cache/apt
/dev/sda1             233G  160G   73G  69% /media/USB

Linux sees it as 73Gig free  yet Samba is reporting 263.2 free

What the heck?

Check out the thread http://openplug.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=57.msg1077 . You need to mount the drive correctly.
