Hi folks,

We are seeing some interesting behavior when there is lots of free space.

Windows explorer does not display the free space when there is more
than a few hundred TB (although we do not exactly when this starts, we
know it hits with 900TB.)

It does not seem to occur with the command prompt. It seems to happen
with Windows 7, Server 2008 and Windows 8 and Server 2012.

Has anyone seen this.
