[mythtv-users] Myth reports incorrect disk space usage?

DU and DF aren't as accurate when you use journaling filesystems.  Disk
usage is optimized in theses newer filesystems, which screws up du/df...

Hey Tim,
 I have this problem too, although mine showed up after trancsoding 2
2.5gb mpeg2 pvr250 files to 2 1.5gb mpeg4 files.  MythTV reports 16% of
a 50GB partition in use with only those 2 files there. I haven't had
time to look into it further.
