Archos machine: 10Gb Recorder
ROM firmware 1.27b
Version of Rockbox 031014-1221
Model of HD in Archos: Hitachi DK23DA-10


The Remain HD space in the Info screen is wrong. My
Archos has 5.5Gb remaining as confirmed in Windows
Explorer, but Rockbox insists only 0.5Gb is remaining.
This task depends upon

This is a problem with Windows, not Rockbox. Windows does
not update the file system information correctly.

Until someone reverse-engineers the way Microsoft does it (as
opposed to the way they have documented it), there is
nothing we can do.
