Bug Description

I have a 80 GB hard drive in my laptop. When I installed elementary OS, I made partitions this way:
* 9 GB - /
* 1 GB - swap
* 70 GB - /home

When I open Switchboard, About, the info says that my hard drive size is 9 GB, instead of 80.

It shows the size of the partition where elementary is installed, maybe a good idea would be to show:
Hard drive: 80 GB
Filesystem: 9 GB

I think it may only detect the primary partition size, as the default eOS installer installs onto a single partition.

I can confirm this issue. Obviously we want to show the full disk size and not the size of the / partition.

I tried to fix this bug, but I'm not sure how to commit my patch. I created a personal branch an attached it to this bug (hope this worked).
If I should commit it in another way or whatever let me know - first time committing patches on launchpad ;)
