[SOLVED] How much space does DSM OS use?

Postby ptheborg » Fri Nov 23, 2012 11:07 am

After installing my new DiskStation I've tried some RAID configurations etc and eventually deleted the Volume and created a new one -> empty volume

Or so I thought, when looking at the volume properties I see disk space used: 1.04 GB
Is this the OS using this space? (RAID6 8 disks)

Thanks in advance for a reply.

Peter

Found the answer, it seems it has something to do with the overhead of the filesystem EXT4.

See: http://askubuntu.com/questions/131516/n ... used-space
