Re: [vox-tech] Why is my disk usage -64 zettabytes?



Possibly.  But if the usage size is messed up, though, it could be a sign
of bigger problems.

BTW, it could also be a driver problem.  I ruled it out earlier since it's
unlikely... but perhaps that was too premature.

In any case, running scandisk or fsck.vfat on it can't hurt.  BTW, I think
the canonical name for "fsck.vfat" is "dosfsck"...
