Understanding USB disk space
 
Hi,

The following USB disk space report confuses me:

$ df /mnt/usbpen
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdc1 490020 471318 0 100% /mnt/usbpen

I would think that there should be some free disk space around
490020 - 471318 = 18702, shouldn't it? Why it is zero?

Thanks
