Having just installed Toad 12 a colleague noticed that the free space displayed in Schema Browser (Tablespace Tab) is incorrect. Upon investigation of the script used to collect the amount of free space we found that Toad now uses DBA_LMT_FREE_SPACE when Toad 11 used to get the data from DBA_FREE_SPACE. The problem is that DBA_LMT_FREE_SPACE regards space used by objects in the recycle bin as being used space whereas DBA_FREE_SPACE regards objects in the recycle bin as being free space.
This is confusing as using Toad 12 we see that a tablespace is full and in need of additional space when in reality there is plenty of free space as Oracle will reuse the space taken by the objects in the recycle bin.
Is there a way of getting Toad 12 to report as Toad 11 used to?
