RS Showing incorrect disk usage on site

Erratic

New Member
Just noticed on my box, that the HDD used figure shown on the RS website is always incorrect.

In my case the site claims about 10.5GB less usage than the box actually does. This isn't a sync problem as I can check the figure literally 10 seconds after the box last contacted the RS site and the figure remains around 10.5GB less used than the box shows.

I know its not a major problem, but is there any reason for this or perhaps a way to fix it?

Which figure are you comparing against? The one shown in the web interface or that on the TV screen?

My "Used" figures differ by 0.05 GiB (WebIf being the higher one) and therefore "Free"+"Dustbin" on the WebIf is smaller than "Free" on RS by 0.05 GiB.

My figures differ by (approx) the size of the [flatview] directory (19.7Gib) suggesting to me that RS is double counting the space use by the linked files.
Code:
Total space: 447.6 GiB
Used: 366.55 GiB (81%)
Free: 59.53 GiB (15%)
Dustbin: 21.51 GiB (4%)
RS
Code:
Total: 447.6 GiB
Used: 385.76 GiB
Free: 61.84 GiB
Usage: 86%
On screen Menu->Settings->System data storage
Code:
Available Size 59.5 GB
Used Size 388.1GB
Reserved Size 72.4GB
Total Size 500.0GB
Another difference to support my hypothesis
Webif (21.51 GiB - 6%) [Deleted Items]
RS [Deleted Items] (57.19 GiB)

I thought that RS and Webif were using the same method for disk space determination but it seems that the TSR reserve adjustment code is only in webif. I'll centralise that and that should fix the disparity.

Has the change been made yet?
I am still seeing a large disparity (36.27Gib) between the Webif and RS usage figures - much higher than could be explained by the TSR buffer.

rs 1.4.9-1 is now there and it should calculate the disk space in the same way as webif, although maybe delayed.
If you want to force a synchronisation with the server, use:

Code:
humax# /mod/sbin/rs_process now -pushds
If you still see a disparity, we can work from there.

Still very different numbers, look especially at overall usage and the [Deleted Items] folder sizes.
Strangely the webif banners is showing under free space the same number as the Deleted items folder size which is different from the Dustbin size !
Other folders are close but not exactly the same
