Since there are at least two "Free Space" and "Total Size" information
per volume (Partition and the Volume itself) and the mounted volume
may contain mountpoints to other volumes, there's nothing that would
make sense to show for such drive letter.

You have to to expect a different "Free space"/"Total Size" information for
every directory in AFS because every directory can be a different volume.
