I have a Xserv running 10.6.8 and it has a total HD space of 2TB. (This is an Open Directory Server.)


It shows that I only have 122GB of free space.


I have manually added up all folders (includig hidden folders), and only come up with 56GB of used space.


My question is where is my 1.8TB of space?


I also used Disk Inventory X and it also shows only 55GB of used space. Where is my 1.8TB of space?



Xserve, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    How did you calculate and evaluate the storage?  The df and du -s tools?  Or some other tools? 


    Also verify the volume....  Boot from distro and use Disk Utility to verify the volume structures.
