i have resized my home drive with LVM but nautilius still reports the previous amount of free space (15.5GB)

If I do lvdisplay I get:

--- Logical volume --- LV Path /dev/fedora_lenovo/home LV Name home VG Name fedora_lenovo LV UUID kjV0NK-y2og-K0xd-wNBO-xJZP-z9Dk-mz5kui LV Write Access read/write LV Creation host, time lenovo, 2016-02-14 15:46:21 +0000 LV Status available # open 1 LV Size 96.91 GiB Current LE 24808 Segments 2 Allocation inherit Read ahead sectors auto - currently set to 256 Block device 253:2

Why is nautilus ignoring the new size?

Thanks in advance

How exactly did you resize the LV? Did you resize the format on it too (using resize2fs), lvm tools resizes just the LV, not the format. What df -h says?
