We have a server that in one of the volumes has about 800GB of data used out of 1TB. Changing the view to show hidden files/show operating system files still does not reveal any folders/files on the volume taking up that capacity. We installed a program winstatdir and it showed us nearly 800gb of .trc files in a directory called unknown. See attached.
any ideas how to get this massive amount of data recovered from a directory we can't see?
