Just deleted lots of files, but disk still shows almost full
Posted on 2006-03-28
I thought I had plenty of room left on my laptop hard drive, but never-the-less was not overly concerned when I received an error message about hard drive space, because I do download a lot of audio and video. However, I have since moved several audio and video files off my drive to another external drive and when I go to review the properties of my laptop drive, it still shows almost full.
I have restarted the laptop, made sure the recycle bin is empty, and confirmed the files I mentioned are no longer there. Yet the drive is still showing almost full. Any ideas?
