JSI Tip 7461. Disk space reporting does NOT include Volume Mount points?

When you mount a volume at an NTFS folder, Windows Explorer and Chkdsk.exe do NOT traverse the mount points, and show real statistics associated with the actual physical volume.

To show accurate statistics, right click the folder hosting the volume and press Properties and Properties. Add the Capacity and Free Space to the sizes of the host volume.
