You state:


"Run a long listing with the option -l to get more information:


tiger12:~ norburym$ ls -l /Volumes
total 72
drwxrwxrwx 1 norburym norburym 16384 May 29 13:13 BIG TIKI
drwxrwxrwx 1 norburym norburym 16384 May 29 13:02 DevilDuckie
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 1 May 29 09:51 Untitled -> /
tiger12:~ norburym$
Total 72 gives me the amount of storage in blocks (each block is 1024 bytes) used by all the items in /Volumes."


Are you hiding other things in /Volumes? When I issue ls -al /Volumes, it only shows this:


~ baltwo$ ls -al /Volumes/
total 8
drwxrwxrwt 10 root admin 340 Jun 17 14:50 .
drwxrwxr-t 39 root admin 1360 Jun 17 14:49 ..
drwxr-xr-x 15 baltwo baltwo 544 Jun 8 20:51 DMGs

I.e., the count is 8, which reflects the eight volumes resident within /Volumes.
