Disk Usage Analyzer is… wrong…

Upon investigating a lack of hard drive space on a server I brought up the disk usage analyzer and scanned the remote drive.

If you pay close attention, you may realize that /proc is 128 TB (yes i know that isn’t supposed to be scanned). However the more interesting part is also that total disk usage was not more than 128TB, furthermore total filesystem capacity listed at the top is also not correct at only 3.7 TB with 2.6TB free…

None of these numbers add up in any way…
