Watch Question

Did you restart the server?  Sometime that may be a cached volume and a reboot may clear it.
What version of server/OS you're running?


Actually I thought of that today afternoon and restarted the Server (SBS2003 SP2) before I postes this will see what happen tomorrow by 11:00 AM When I usually received the report.


Thanks pcchiu

From the disk manager did you see any abnormal partition(ie: unused partition)?

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.
In the console tree, click Disk Management.
