Now, I looked at these figures and they do look much less dramatic then the
ones from gui, I guess it is a usual end of sector/block loss. Thanks for
reminding me about other tools (du/df) available.

If in doubt type format c:/u/autotest at DOS prompt... and install Linux
Where do I find out the partitions, or volumes, or whatever they are called?
I installed 2.7 on a 2 gig drive and get messages that I am out of disk space.
Is there another partition, or volume or something else?
