    I am using XP PRO

    I have my downloads going to my E drive


    When my E drive is full....

    I control-X (cut) from my E drive ---large files like movies
    and control-V (paste) large files to my D drive

    So the files move from my E drive to my D drive.

    But, My E drive doesnt show that there is more avilable space! It shows that it is still full! I cannot defrag or run my sharing programs!!!

    If I move a file, the amount of avail space should increase!!! shouldnt it?

    Please help

    Do you have norton systemworks or a similar program?
    If so, empty your protected recycle bin
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Scanned the hard drive for errors?

    Windows sucks, it doesn't report disk space correctly sometimes.

    Thanks for tip. Ran scan disk. Still not right.
    Hazor I guess you are right, Windows is not reporting the disk space correctly.
    This sucks because:

    I cannot use Overnet
    I cannot defrag

    turn off sytem restore for drive, right click my computer>properties>system restore click the drive in question then "settings" and then "turn of system restore for this drive" and apply, also right click on recycle bin>properties>global options> tick configure drives independently then go to the drive in question and tick " do not move files to recycle bin" and apply. you dont really need them enabled if its a storage drive and if they were on defualt settings you should get back 20% of the drive and that will give you back the 15% min to defrag properly. also have you explored the drive where you cut n pasted the files from to see if they were actually cut and not just copied? worth a look

    Great tip boyzeeeeeeee!

    Here is another one that I found and works!!!


    The recycle bin folder on the drive is corrupt, and you need to delete it. It's RECYCLED on W2000 which I'm using at the moment, but I can't remember if it's RECYCLER in XP or not. Anyway, empty Norton protected Files, and disable Norton Protection for the drive. Right-click and SHIFT-Delete the (hidden) folder on that drive. Re-enabling Norton Protection for that drive will re-create it.

    Now I have 2 gigs space! Wow!
