Our domain controller is running w2k3.
Our E: drive (Capaity 135 GB.. RAID 5, for the record) seem to be missing around 20 GB.
Properties on the disk show 117 GB used and 17.9 GB free.
When I select ALL files on vol. (including hidden and system), it shows size: 96.2 GB,size on disk: 96.8.
Where could my missing 20 GB be? :-)

Thanks,
E.D.

Ah ha!
I found the solution.

Our users have their 'My Docs' directories redirected to the server. The user becomes the owner, thus giving the ADMIN no permissions on the dir. Makes sense now! ;-)

Thanks everyone!
