Bug Description

Binary package hint: usb-creator

We may be able to get away with not mounting each partition in order to get the free space by using libparted to obtain it or reading it from the superblock ourselves. The kernel team noted that the free space information in the superblock of VFAT partitions will be inaccurate if they were last mounted by Windows.
