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?

    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.

    Well I think I found were the space went.

     

    When logged in as an admin user it does not calculate all the OD user accounts.

     

    When I logged in as Root it then calculated all the data for all the OD user accounts.

     

    So I found were all the space was being used.
