Ugh - mailman seems to strip the image...  Here's what the "Properties  
of Share" dialogue says (note: texts are my vague translations from  

     Type:           network drive
     File system:    NTFS

[BLUE] Occupied Space:        /*)+0',)/.-. Bytes    -5746688
[PINK] Free Space:         184.689.340.416 Bytes      172 GB
Capacity:                   17.179.869.184 Bytes     16,0 GB

Fixed folding of the Quota report:
