I'm connecting to a DNS-323 network storage from my Ubuntu 12.04 Computer. The connection to the two shared drives from the NAS is working fine but there is no way I can look at the free space on each of those two shared drives.
In windows when connecting to those drives I see no difference from local drives and I can use them in any app and see the free space in "properties".
In Ubuntu those shared drives seem to have a special status and I cannot use them from some applications (the Network drives are not listed when selecting "open").
Is there a way to mount a samba drive in Ubuntu so it looks like a local drive and the free space can be checked?
