FS#9490 - iPod Disk Space

Around the 3.0 release and ever since then my "Free" space left that is displayed in the Rockbox Info and Debug sections hasn't changed. It's stayed at 446mb even though I have 3gb left or even 10gb left. Doesn't seem to update. I've initialized the database several times since 3.0 and that hasn't affected it. I couldn't pinpoint the exact build where it got like this but I'm pretty sure it was either the 3.0 release or a few builds before.

Just Windows being silly.

This is most liekly not a bug in rockbox, but a problem with the filesystem. Run a filesyster checker on it

What kinda filesystem checker? This did work fine before, in fact when I forgot how much I had, I used to check it quite frequently.

if your on windows look for the check disk option in the drives properties window… mac dunno… linux fsck.vfat

I don't really think it's a problem with the disk but I will run a check tomorrow, it will take a long time.

This is a common and well-known problem with Windows. It doesn't update the FSINFO structure on the disk, where the free space info is located. You can force a recalculation of the free disk space by pressing SELECT in the Rockbox Info screen.

Awesome, pressing select fixes it. I am still disappointed, all my "bugs" seem to be un-related with Rockbox. Thanks, this can be closed now.
