    I have a samba share from a linux box mounted onto my macbook pro (10.6.8). However, it recognizes the size as 64GB when the share is actually 750GB. Is there any known solution to this problem?

    Thanks

    In Finder, I use go to server and type:

    smb://192.168.1.103:/home/linuxbox/smbshare

    I get wrong sizes in finder and also in terminal (df -h). I would like to use this share for time machine backups (yes, it's possible with a little hack). However, time machine also recognizes it as being 64GB.
