The disk info statistics of the internal space can show a negative file count as can be seen in the screenshot. Probably an unsigned int gets interpreted as signed here.

This happened to me on on the Jolla C.

Signed int overflow?

Same here. I've linked some folders to sdcard, what is probably the reason.

More likely it's hard links which make the sum of file sizes greater than the amount of space actually used on disk. Already noticed internally, should be fixed in 2.0.4
