How to interpret 'Diskinfo' ?

Post by mcc » Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:56 am


I am exploring my DM42 and found the 'Diskinfo' menu entry.
This menu entry gives the following informations:

Disk State: READY
Storage: OK
Storage Info:

Disk block count: 1536
Bad block count: 0
1st good block: 0

I have some questions about this informations:
"Bad block count" and "1st good block" is related to the status of the physical flash or to the filesystem?
"Disk block count" is the total size of the internal flash disk or the number of free blocks?
If it is the first one, how can I get the size of the remaining free space on the flash?
