hmm, so maybe
"size (% of disk usage)"
but maybe percantage of disk usage + percentage of filesystem usage will
just loose the user

you can use the english "fs", as technical users will understand it, but
it's not french, and non technical users will certainly be lost
but then, don't translate anything ;) 

also, most people are completly lost with the difference between a
partition and a filesystem, (and also many of them don't even know what
a partition is, they buy harddisks, not partitions !)
Parted already minimize the difference between partitions and
filesystem, maybe there should be no difference at all fo the users (eg:
mkpart and mkfs, the first should disapear, or only be available in
advanced mode)
