Vista shows network drive space incorrectly
Hi, hope someone can help.

I have recently bought a 1tb linux based nas. I used my XP machine to load
files onto it and it shows that the drive has 750gb of 915gb free.
I connected my vista pc to the drive using the same id/password and was able
to read the files and delete one.
The problem is that the vista pc thinks the drive is only 1mb with 96k free.

Any ideas on how to get vista to show the correct drive size/free space?

TIA,
Alan

Install XP over it. That should solve the problem.

Re: Vista shows network drive space incorrectly
Hi
Vista needs to be SAMBA enabled in order to "Talk" correctly to a Linux
share.
Maybe this can Help,
