    Samba share wrong size

    running 12.04, have a RAID-5 with 4TB for holding my files. trying to move 900gigs from my windows machine to the samba share i set up inside the RAID.

    i get an error saying it only has enough room for 2gigs. on the ubuntu machine the raid is empty, and checking the folder properties of the share show that it has 4TB free

    here's my samba.conf which is pretty much a copypasta from the forums

        ; General server settings
    	netbios name = Yuki
    	server string = 
    	workgroup = WORKGROUP
    	announce version = 5.0
    ;	passdb backend = tdbsam
    	security = user
    	null passwords = true
    	username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
    	name resolve order = hosts wins bcast
    	wins support = yes
    ;	printing = CUPS
    	printcap name = CUPS
    ;	syslog = 1
    	syslog only = yes
    ; NOTE: If you need access to the user home directories uncomment the
    ; lines below and adjust the settings to your hearts content.
        ;valid users = %S
        ;create mode = 0600
        ;directory mode = 0755
        ;browseable = no
        ;read only = no
        ;veto files = /*.{*}/.*/mail/bin/
    ; NOTE: Only needed if you run samba as a primary domain controller.
    ; Not needed as this config doesn't cover that matter.
        ;path = /var/lib/samba/netlogon
        ;admin users = Administrator
        ;valid users = %U
        ;read only = no
    ; NOTE: Again - only needed if you're running a primary domain controller.
        ;path = /var/lib/samba/profiles
        ;valid users = %U
        ;create mode = 0600
        ;directory mode = 0700
        ;writeable = yes
        ;browseable = no
    ; NOTE: Inside this place you may build a printer driver repository for
    ; Windows - I'll cover this topic in another HOWTO.
    	path = /var/lib/samba/printers
    ;	browseable = yes
    	guest ok = yes
    ;	read only = yes
    	write list = root
    	create mask = 0664
    	directory mask = 0775
    	path = /tmp
    	printable = yes
    	guest ok = yes
    	browseable = no
    ; Uncomment if you need to share your CD-/DVD-ROM Drive
    ;[DVD-ROM Drive]
        ;path = /media/cdrom
        ;browseable = yes
        ;read only = yes
        ;guest ok = yes
    	path = /home/nagato/Desktop
    ;	writeable = no
    ;	browseable = yes
    	valid users = Forbees
    	path = /media/ServerData/Public
    	writeable = yes
    ;	browseable = yes
    	valid users = Forbees
    the RAID-5 is mounted in /media/ServerData - automatically done from Gnome Disk Utility, the samba share is set up from the Samba gui in the software center. chmod 0777 on /media/ServerData/Public - where i'm trying to move the files

    all i can find on the forum is the same problem and no answer, on google i can only find people trying to use a root path as a share

    tl:dr have 4tb of data for samba - windows only see's 2Gig
