Vfs-disk-space-total-size shows same numbers for Size and Used columns in df output

Continuing the discussion from --vfs-disk-space-total-size shows same number for Size and Used in df output:

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Running rclone mount with the --vfs-disk-space-total-size flag, and specifying a size < 999T causes the output of df to show the same numbers for Size and Used columns when used with at least a DROPBOX mount, seems to work fine with gdrive mounts for some reason

root@home:~$ df -h
Filesystem             Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
gd_crypt:               1.1P  350T   993T  43% /mnt/gdrive
db_crypt:               1.5P  1.5P   942G 100% /mnt/temp

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.60.0-beta.6429.555def2da

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

dropbox + crypt

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone mount db_crypt:/ /mnt/temp --allow-other --umask 002 --tpslimit 12 --tpslimit-burst 12 --vfs-disk-space-total-size 1500T

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

And output from a typical gdrive mounted, if it helps -- some numbers censored/altered:

You can file a bug report for it.

What's the use case for setting that on dropbox?

Bug report filed -- was hoping someone could confirm.
Use case, maybe show a little more realistic size when mounting or for backends that have issues reporting the information back?

Sorry as I'm not following as I use dropbox and my mount reports the actual size of my dropbox properly.
