It is all in the documentation and FAQs. I believe what you are now seeing is the difference between the total space and the space available to be written by a user process.

You can change that but should not. ////jerry > FreeBSD fellat.rackerx.com 6.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE #0: Fri Jan 12 > 11:05:30 UTC 2007 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP > i386 > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
