Missing Space in MS WinXP!
Posted on 2003-03-21
I have used an (additional) external HDD w/ USB port for some time. In the size of 30GB it has been a pleasure to work with. I used to store my main HDD backup, as well as a whole bunch of MP3, video, and image files. Sadly, it has never been enough for a man to have anything, so sometimes I have to delete some files to replace with another.
The problem is that a few days ago when I delete some 1.4GB of video files, there seemed to be something wrong: The files were gone, BUT I didnt get any space back in return!!!
Has anybody ever seen something like this? or any suggestions on it?
I've tried everything I could to get those space back; from Scandisk, Viruscheck, and also using some features in Norton Utilities (WinDoctor, Disk Doctor, and even Speed Disk). All of them returns negative.
Actually I dont know exactly the use of all of them, but usually if there's something wrong with my computer, they returns some error.
