    Yeah this seems really off...

    I can finally see what might be wrong

    @Tinshi what the f.....
    EB size? (need google... exabyte, or 1000 peta bytes) what did that hd cost?

    @magicMirror 50$ from amazon, though when i originally bought it, it was 1TB, but WD probably released an update that increased it a bit.

    @Tinshi Nice. The NSA might give you a call. They need your supplier to help with a couple of projects....

    Wonder what’s causing the size to be negative 🤔

    One whole hour and no npm joke, I'm impressed 😅

    Sparse files. You can mmap preposterous amounts of space and only use little chunks of it and only the hunks with data get committed to vnodes. This is 1990s os technology and I can’t believe how many people still don’t understand this.

    Same with mmaping virtual memory only. I work on an application at work that maps about 150TB of memory but can run on a machine with 8gb of ram. Because that is just virtual page table space, not committed hunks.

    @FrodoSwaggins well, it was hopping from 8eb to negative values randomly, it was not done on purpose

    @FrodoSwaggins it was hopping lile that while evaluating space

    @Tinshi some sort of integer rollover issue, weird spot for it though. I remember a windows 2000 bug where any time the copy took more than like 8 hours it would report like 150 years until it was done. Then it would be done in like 9 hours

    @FrodoSwaggins well I think the rollover is the least of an issue there. Bigger problem was the fact that somehow it calculated that much space in 1tb drive on its own

    @Tinshi Sparse files is the answer to that.
    Also could be corruption in the used vs free space stored values.

    @Tinshi no it’s not actually. Size on disk represents how many vnodes are actually consumed on the disk. You can store sparse files that are exabytes large on a one gigabyte disk if they are sparse enough. Filesystems support that.

    @Tinshi with this technology we can download ram! Send me the link
