3 TB drive showing 97% full when it is < than 40% full

Post by JLopilato » Tue Jun 21, 2016 5:57 am

Hello all:

I'm hoping that some of you can help me with this problem.

I have a Lacie 2big nas that has a single 3 TB drive in it. I don't use it very often, mostly for backing up data on my mac, movies, etc.
The firmware is up-to-date (as of today) and Seagate Sdrive is version 2.5.5.

I logged into it tonight and discovered that it is 97% full. There must be something wrong because I calculated the size of each of the folders and all my data adds up to 700 GB's.

The drive is not setup as a Raid (Raid 1 - no data protection) - and no one else is using it.

Is there anything I can do to correct this issue? Is there an app that I can use to check/correct the size of the individual folders?

Please Help with this issue.

Thanks for any/all responses and suggestions/comments.
