Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

We already connected it to the Mac but it does not show anything.

I guess that is what I am going to do next, backup everything that is currently on the harddrive and let TestDisk run.

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

It's possible. But what would be the solution to this then?

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

I can only say what she told me. She said she checked and the folder was really there, but anyway I am losing hope ;) But so far noone couldn't explain me this difference of the space yet. exFAT is case-insensitive, so MASTER=master=Master... okay, I didn't know this. But I guess it doesn't really h...

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

What exactly led to the folder getting 'misplaced' ? Was it between reboots, or were trying to move data, etc. ? Have you rebooted since that happened ? It is actually my girlfriend's hard drive and she just explained it to me again: - She copied the TFM Folder from her Mac Computer to MIEL - She c...

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

But isn't is suspicious that the difference between the both values (which is more than 100 GB!) is fitting pretty exactly the size of the folder that I copied?

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

The command you proposed would just list ALL directories (including subdirectories). Therefore I executed this command instead (only showing the top level directory instead): sudo du -h --max-depth=1 | sort -h -r 650G . 277G ./Pelis 157G ./FOTOA2 84G ./Musika 19G ./TFM 19G ./CULTURA VISUAL 18G ./Jua...

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

Yep it is empty.

But as you could see on the screenshot there is much more disk space used than I have files. How is that?

And is it possible to somehow tell the filesystem to look for this used diskspace recover those files?

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

I did. Unfortunately it just shows all the file that I can see on the disk as well. The total size it shows me is the same as the sum of all individual files (685 GB).

So it does not help accessing the "invisible" 110 GB that somehow must still be there.

Thanks for the idea though!

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

The 110 GB is obviously much more than 5%.

Also, there is still more than enough free space on the volume.

So, is there a way to access those files or will I need to do some kind of recovery scan?

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

Thanks for the idea but both results yielded nothing, or just showed files from folders other than this empty folder. This folder is literally completely empty. When I execute sudo du -h MASTER/ it just shows 128K MASTER/ (which is a little weird because I thought an empty directory takes only 4 kb ...

Re: Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why

So then how can I see those files as a root?

I just naively switched to root and ls'ed the folder but it is still empty.

Sum of all files does not add up to used disk space. Why?

Hello everybody, I was missing a big folder on my external hard drive and I am trying to find out where it went. When looking at the properties of my volume I found this weird difference between the sum of all files and the actual used disk space. http://i.imgur.com/iiSxkQn.png The folder I am missi...
