Error in Disk Space Reports
Posted on 1997-05-04
I have recently got a new computer, and Win 95 is installed in it. I have a 3 GB FAT32 partition for Win 95. Whenever I click on the "property sheet" of my C drive, it always says that I have a bit more than 2 GB free, even when the MS-DOS prompt (in Win 95) says that I actually have almost 3 GB free. I have now loaded enough software in the system that the two numbers seem to agree, but I don't know if it will last. Also, the pie chart in the property sheet shows nothing but free space, even though I have already used up 1/3 of the hard drive.
I don't think this will cause any problem, but I would like to have it fixed somehow. I wonder if this is somehow a FAT32/FAT16 incompatibility? It shouldn't be because the property sheet correctly recognizes that the partition is a FAT32 system.
Any help would be appreciated.
