df command percentage error
# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-Backups 425G 377G 27G 94% /Backups
Size = 425G
Used = 377G
Available = 27G
Used + Available = 404G != 425G
¿Why is Used + Available different from Total Size? This is not happening in any other server.
I've tried remounting and rebooting the system.
The "du" command show that the "Used" space in the "/Backups" directory from the "df" command is correct!

Thanks in advance.
because the filesystem itself takes up some of the space that is not reported by df. If you format a 1TB hard drive as EXT4 you lose a bit of the space to the EXT4 format (it's worse in NTFS but every format will use some space immediately)Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
