The windows client will be requesting disk space from the top
level of the share, which will cause Samba to get the disk
free information on the disk mounted on that directory. It
won't recurse through mounted disks to look for other disks
mounted in sub directories.

If you need t od othis you can write a customer disk free command
(see the "dfree command" parameter in the smb.conf) which could
do this.

Hope this helps,
