Kimsufi KS-1, df -h shows a larger disk than 1TB

scookescooke Member

I'm pretty sure I've seen discussion here about Kimsufi disks being larger than advertised, but I can't find them. Thus my post. The KS-1 I somehow managed to snag is supposed to have 1T, but according to df - h it had 1.99T, and just today as I double-checked, it is showing 1.5T. So, is df -h is more definitive than what is advertised?

If so, is it safe to treat it like it will remain >1TB, or, as it appears, will it shrink over time?

    If it’s dynamically changing how much storage it appears to have, I probably wouldn’t store anything on that disk.

    What does fdisk -l show?

    This has sent me on a search for distributed Minio setups/backing up Minio (I'm running Minio on this server)!

    A distributed minio setup is easy, just use minio server /mnt1 /mnt2 /mnt3 /mnt4, you need four separate disks at a minimum.

    To back up minio in its single drive mode, just back up minio's storage folder and you're good to go.

    What's the disk model? smartctl -a /dev/sdx should reveal the correct capacity of the disk. df-h might report something else if you have funky partitioning (LVM/ZFS, etc)

    It depends on the luck, usually it's all 2TB nowadays. Free upgrade.

    Geezer, you have to actually read threads, not just reply to the title.

    So, I guess it IS 2T, not 1TB as advertised.

  • smile93smile93 Member

    Yes, I have recently ordered 2 KS1. All come with 2T hard disk.
