How did you measure it on Windows? I suspect what's happening is that Windows gave you the actual sum of the sizes of all the files, whereas du(1) counts the space *used* by all the files. In other words, the Windows tool is giving a count in bytes, whereas du(1) is giving a count in disk blocks (rounded up to the nearest block, because that space is unavailable for other files to use). _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
