Are you absolutely positive that this is the right filesystem you're
checking? A symbolic link in the path could easily change that if you
don't explicitly check.  Have you tried giving df an argument of the
actual path to one of the downloaded files instead of the filesystem
mount point? df is smart enough to extract the actual filesystem on
which that file is stored and display information for that.
