[Samba] dfree command does not use actual directory

I have 8 disks. Instead of having a share for each of them, I use a share to
my home directory, where I have a symbolic link to a directory with links to
the disks.

This works since many years.

Since my home FS is almost full, I cannot copy large amounts to my disks, as
the disk full shows disk full for the share (home) FS.


I setup "dfree command", but noticed before the script gets called a cd to
the root of the share is done and "$1" is the share path.


Using PPID (available in the script) and smbstatus is not an option, when
having more filepointers open

Is there another option to have the df from the actual directory?

I would like to change the source to use the actual directory. Any pointers
what/where to change would be helpful.


Thanks in Advance
