Windows 2003 reports 0 bytes free 0 bytes used

Last Modified: 2010-08-05

I get this problem often on hard drives.

I have 2 hard drives (C,D) and sometimes I start getting errors from programs saying that there is no space on x Drive. If I right click the drive and see properties, I see 0 bytes free , 0 bytes used. Altough the drives contains files, and C is the primary drive, so its imposible it does not have used space.

I suspect that this is a memory error because it occurs when I use the computer for extended periods of time.

Any ideas?
