System showing lesser disk space
Posted on 2006-03-24
D Drive on my win 2K machine shows
Capacity 27.9 GB
Used 20.0 GB
Free 7.91 GB
However, if I select all the stuff on the drive and check right click -> properties ... It shows only 14.7 GB disk space consumption. Hidden folders had been selected and recycle bin emptied so I am inclined to belive that 14.7 GB is all that is consumed.
Where is the remaining 5.3 GB disk space being used and how can I claim it back?
Note: other drives/partitions are showing correct stats. Problem is with this one partition only
