we have a red hat el 6.7 server still with samba-3.6.23. I know that is
a bit old, but running fine for us most of the time.
After running slowly out of space on a share I checked the server and
On my Mac OS X Client and a Windows 7 Client the share is shown with a
capacity of about 220 GB, 70GB free.
The filesystems the share is hosted on is 545GB in size and 32 GB free.
Quotas are enabled but unlimited for me.
Question: Why dose the clients show more than 2 times of free space as
the filesystem has?
Any ideas, suggestions, hints? (Updating to samba 4.x is not an option
yet ... but 2016 ;) )
Thanks and regards . Götz
