    Okay, a few day ago i was deleting some files to free up some space. I deleted about 3.5 GB but the hard drive free space stayed 434 MB I scanned the disk for errors and defragmented it but nothing changed. Can anyone offer any help?
    I came here to shit and stink,
    But all I do is sit and think.

    A while back my hard drive did the same thing, I couldnt figure out what was wrong and in did up reformating my hard drive, it fixed the problem. But im not recommending reformating im just telling you what I did and that I had the same problem.

    I emptied the recycle bin and the norton files before I even posted my problem. I did an antivirus scan on the whole hard drive and it found html.redlof.a but it wasn&#39;t in the system files. Anyway I turned off the computer and came the next day and found that everything was correct&#33;? I don&#39;t know what happened. Thanks for your advice anyway.

    Probably just stored temp files of all the deleted files somewhere on your HD and was set to remove after shutdown, something like that, anyway, glad it&#39;s fixed&#33;
