Hi Seth,

I have the same problem very often. That's why I correct the Rockbox value
before every long recording:

To fix this go into "debug | view disk info | free space". Press play.
Rockbox will scan the HD and correct the value.

Is it possible to access a free space scan outside the debug window?
