Wrong size information shown for DFS client shares

Question / Problem

TreeSize shows the wrong size and free space of a distributed file system (DFS) share

Answer / Solution

These incorrect sizes can also be seen in the Windows Explorer.
This results from a limitation in the server message block (SMB) protocol which unfortunately always returns the information of the host of the share and not the share itself.
