If you have installed the 8.5.1 administrator client, you may have noticed that the Space Used column is missing from the Files view.  I, for one, find this information very useful.  I opened a PMR with Lotus support concerning this and was told "it was decided that "Space Used" will be completely removed from the admin client as it was deemed no longer necessary."
Is that true?  Does everyone except me find it unnecessary?
I would like to see it added back, anyone else?
I'd like to mention that back in May '09 I attended an 8.5.1 info session.  There was a workshop that included DAOS.  I noticed that when DAOS was enabled the Space Used column no longer reported on free space, but reflected the difference between the logical and physical size of a DAOS enabled database.  Not really a useful number.  I brought this to the presenters attention.  He got back to me a few weeks later & told me that it was "fixed in 8.5.1".  Little did I know that the "fix" was to remove the column altogether.

If I could promote this more, I would! It is these little things we miss!

Do the people at IBM really listen to us humble customers? You might wonder.

OK, this must have been a brain fart. Whoever did it, just say 'the dog did it' and put it back and we'll all act like nothing happened.

yes, we use this on a regular basis. Please add it back in.
Thank You.

This has saved our butts a number of times when we've had to figure out which dbs would give us the best bang for our compact buck.

Everyone makes mistakes, IBM just put your hand up and admit on this one and lets have it back please.

If it has to change because of DAOS, sure, but there still needs to be a way to see how much whitespace there is in the DB, so get it fixed in 8.5.2!!
