I have a Windows 2003 server and I have a F: drive that is reporting incorrect free space. In My computer, it shows 68 GB capacity and only about 200Mb free.
If I select all the folders on that drive and go to Properties, it only shows 54GB used up. I ran chkdsk and here's what I get:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>chk
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Volume label is Data.

I ran it with the /F option but I haven't rebooted my server for it to run.
1. I ran Disk cleanup to get rid of temp files, trash, etc.
2. Disk Quota is not turned on
3. I read the article on Microsoft's site http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;303079
but it didn't help me understand what's happening on the server
