Reading the system with command df -h

I have a small interpretation problem about the occupancy of the Q40s system on the hard disk.

I installed Q4os on my other Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO mobile laptop with 500Mb RAM (I have several laptops with Q4os installed). I installed the Basic Desktop Profile. I only added about 9 elements with about 220Mb in total. By the way, perfect installation.

When I run the "df -h" command in console, it tells me that I have 6.7Gb used, but 427Gb available on a 500Gb disk that stays at 457Gb.

Accurate reading of the command is:
adminq@q4os-desktop:~$ df -h
S.ficheros     Tamaño Usados  Disp Uso% Montado en
udev             192M      0  192M   0% /dev
tmpfs             43M   944K   42M   3% /run
/dev/sda1        457G   6,7G  427G   2% /
tmpfs            213M      0  213M   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs            5,0M   8,0K  5,0M   1% /run/lock
tmpfs             43M    28K   43M   1% /run/user/1000

My questions is: How much is the system taking up in this case? Because if I have 427Gb left why does it tell me I'm using 6.7Gb. Someone please clear this doubt for me. Thank you.

Re: Reading the system with command df -h

This command output also confuses me. According to it, I have the total space of my /dev/sda2 partition - 109G, used space - 13G, but available free space - 91G. (See attachment)
But why? If the total available space is 109G, but used space is 13G, then available free space should be 96G (109-13=96), but not 91G, as shown in this command output. The same units of measurement are used everywhere.

Before asking for help please read this topic: https://www.q4os.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=3502   If you have problems with WiFi network, try to install the Network Manager using Q4OS Software Centre.
