Mounted Volume not reflected in available space?

I am tending an old server -- the disk was was partitioned with 20 GB on the C: drive for programs, and a couple other partitions for data.   Space eventually got tight on the C: drive, so I added another 40 GB partition as a mounted volume folder on C:, assuming that this would show up as new available space.  While the folder is there, shows as a mounted volume, and I can store data to it, the C: drive reports no additional space, so I cannot install anything additional.   Is this a 'feature' of Win2003, or am missing something?

Thanks!

You're not missing anything...this is a 'feature' of Windows.

If you think about it logically though, a mount point starts off life as a folder so it will never be included in the available disk space.

Thanks Jake.
I just seems odd that the space is not represented anywhere on the system...

You can give the logical volume a drive letter (i.e. Q:) as well as a mount point - don't know if that's any help to you.

Jake,
I'll give that a try, as I was unable to install additional software due to space limitations.
