I'm deleting many gigs of files off an Exchange Server... but C isn't showing anymore space. I've verified they are not in the Recycle Bin. I'm up to 15 gigs of deleted files of C drive (no other drives present), but the C drive still shows only 4 gigs or so free out of a useable 136 gigs.

try downloading and installing sequioaview (do google search). use this to see where the space is used in a graphical way

To delete files in 2008 you must be admin or the $c:recycle.bin stays around.
