Windows 7 Network drive size display

I have a client with a 2003 Small business server and has recently upgraded the 3 workstations from XP to Windows 7. They have sever shared folders on the server that I map drives to. I can connect to them and on the fist PC it shows the correct size of the drive and its free space. (142G total and 46G free)

However on the other two the size shows up different. On one it shows up as 74M free and the other it shows 160M free. I can still access the drive from all 3 PC's and am not sure this is going to cause a problem but has anyone seen this with Windows 7 yet?
