I have a backup disk unit of 1 Terabyte. It is connected to my network and from my Windows pc I can access directories and files on it. However the disk space available as shown is much less than the unit has, and so when I attempt to copy a large directory as a backup from the PC the unit runs out of space.
Accessing the unit using Linux I can find the existing directories and with some linux commands like ls I can look at the files and see their current sizes. I believe that what I need to do is mount the whole unit to be available but I don't know how to or if this is correct.
I have some basic unix/linux knowledge.
Any help much appreciated.
