    There is nothing to fix. Except maybe in the disk usage app. But that's only a cosmetic thing. Read through this thread, you are not using double the disk space.

    Ya, there is something to fix. I'm using 300MB in my home directory, but in df, my home dir and Private dir are EACH showing 100 GB usage. Applications are failing because of no free space.

    been fighting this since i did a fresh install of 11.10 on a new machine.

    finally made a bug report. it'll prolly get shot down but this needs to be addressed imo. w/o an encryption solution, we can't use ubuntu. it's against our policy.

    There is something to fix. I understand that it's not really using double the disk space, but some applications believe the warning to be true, thus, sometimes, I am unable to log in and loads some applications.
