Re: ext3 partition size

Andreas.... thanks for the suggestion, I did a resize2fs -d -p /dev/sdb8  on the partition  and is now showing the size and disk usage correctly.

Thanks for your advise.

I am noticing a partition on  my drive is reporting incorrect size with "df", the partition is ext3 size 204GB with about 79GB actual usage, the "df" result show the partition size to be 111GB, 93GB is missing. Please advice on what can be done to see why the system is reporting incorrect partition size.

It definitely looks strange.  Did you resize this partition after it was created?  In any case, running "resize2fs /dev/sdb8" should enlarge the
filesystem to fill the partition.
