Default Ubuntu: Disk Usage Analyzer

Hello,

On my machine I have 250GB HD and I am 100% sure about it. but the Disk Usage Analyzer seems to very
generous and shows that

********** Total filesystem capacity 452.1GB.

and here is df command:

csv610@blackhole:~$ df
Filesystem********** 1K-blocks***** Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1*********** 236310552** 8400296 216000872** 4% /
varrun**************** 1026388****** 108** 1026280** 1% /var/run

varlock*************** 1026388******** 0** 1026388** 0% /var/lock

gvfs-fuse-daemon**** 236310552** 8400296 216000872** 4% /home/csv610/.gvfs
/dev/scd0************* 1463168** 1463168******** 0 100% /media/cdrom0
csv610@blackhole:~$

So can someone explain why Disk space reports 452GB ?

Hi Chaman,

If you look at these two lines:

/dev/sda1 236310552 8400296 216000872 4% /
gvfs-fuse-daemon 236310552 8400296 216000872 4% /home/csv610/.gvfs

They're the same partition, but (and I might be wrong about my
analysis -- if anyone knows what exactly it is, I'd love to know!)
there is something like a symlink between /home/csv610/.gvfs and / .
Without that duplicate, you're down to your ~250GB drive size.

If you'll notice the '/' and the /home/csv610/.gvfs mounts are
identical. A quick google gets this:

----[ README ]
| gvfs is a userspace virtual filesystem designed to work with the i/o
| abstractions of gio (a library availible in glib >= 2.15.1). It
| installs several modules that are automatically used by applications
| using the APIs of libgio. There is also fuse support that allows
| applications not using gio to access the gvfs filesystems.
|
|
| The gvfs model differs from e.g. gnome-vfs in that filesystems must
| be mounted before they are used. There is a central daemon (gvfsd)
| that handles coordinting mounts, and then each mount is (typically)
| in its own daemon process (although mounts can share daemon process).
|
| gvfs comes with a set of backends, including trash support, sftp,
| smb, http, dav and others. More backends are planned.
|
| gvfs also contains modules for gio that implement hal volume monitors
| and the gnome uri-scheme handler configuration.
|
| There is a set of command line programs starting with "gvfs-" that
| lets you run commands (like cat, ls, stat, etc) on files in the gvfs
| mounts.

To me "vfs" means "Virtual File System". Doing a quick Google search on
"gvfs" gave this as a probable culprit:

I don't trust some GUI tools. Open a terminal and see what this
command reports:

df -h
