Thanks for your report.

Have you already cleaned all the old kernels? Or they still there?

Unfortunately, I already cleaned out all the kernels. If it helps any, the kernels I cleaned out were 3.2.0-12 through 3.2.0-22, leaving behind just 3.2.0-23 and the 3.2.0-24 kernel I am running on. Ubuntu Tweak still recognizes 3.2.0-23 as able to be cleaned out, but at least now it reports the memory size correctly.

Perhaps it was an overflow of some sort?

It also looks to me like for each kernel version, there is a linux-headers-3.2.0-xx, linux-headers-3.2.0-xx-generic, and linux-image-3.2.0-xx-generic package. From the 3.2.0-23 kernel that is still listed, the size is 205.9 MB total. So, at the time I cleaned out all those old kernels, I had about 2264.9 MB (or a little over 2 GB) available to regain.

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for your feedback, glad to hear that you've cleaned the old kernels you don't need. I guess there's some overflow for the size count, I will try to fix it.
