I know this is a common occurrence when the result of
du -sh is smaller than that returned by the file system with
df -h. (Because some files are still open in processes etc..) But in my case I have the opposite.
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 and trying to get the used size of an NFS mount
df -h returns
270G used while
du -sh of the mounted folder returns
Update: I'm mounting the partition with the following options:
nas-server:/path/to/mount /mnt/mount/point nfs proto=tcp,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,hard,intr,exec
Does anyone know where this could come from? The correct amount on the disk should be 270G~
Thanks for your help. I'll provide any extra information necessary.
