Backup to disk folder showing 0 available capacity but have never written a backup to it

I have put a new usb external hard drive on my backup server.  I've created a backup to folder disk and a media set with it however, when I try to write a backup to it, it always fails.  

I'm seeing where in the media set it shows my available capacity on the folder as 0, total capacity as 100GB (I changed that setting) and bytes written as 0.

Anyone know how I can change the capacity to allow for the 300gb hard drive to show me something?

Thanks

I am confused as to which setting you changed, it wasn't the setting on the advanced properties page of the B2D folder under disk space settings called Disk space Reserve was it? That's the space that BE will not use, it is normally left at zero. The only setting on that tab you change is the maximum size which can be increased to 100GB or such.

yes - i did create a folder - which then created another folder under need it called FLDR000004 - is this right?  
This is the first time I've used backup to disk - I always backed up to tape before so this is a bit confusing.

then I created a media set which has the B2D000002 media label under it - but not the FLDR that was created before.  Do I need to move that folder to the media set?

thanks
