Several possibilities:
-----------------------
You have to dump the deleted files from the deleted files folder. (empty it)
Each user and disk may have it's own separate folder. (Recyle Bin)

You may have to turn the backup software off (may be more than just the Windows restore file running)

Make sure any file sharing software is turned off. (Bearshare, Limewire, etc.)

You may have to clean the drive of temporary files either manually or with a program like ccleaner to get some of the hidden temporary files off. (I have seen several gigabytes of hidden temporary files in corrupted computers)

You should unhide the hidden files and see how many temporary files are still there (you cannot delete the ones in use or see the hidden ones)

Run several spyware cleaners - you may have a hidden folder with downloaded files a botnet is using - hidden from you so they can pass on to others.

You should probably run chkdsk from the startup in Administrator - files may be corrupted so the disk index cannot either clean or understand that they are actually gone. In full mode, it will need you to restart the computer.

You may have to run defrag, as the files may be so scattered the cleaning is not working.

The System Tools under accessories has a disk cleanup function. It can take up to a few hours on a filled and fragmented disk.

All this should be part of your regular maintenance.
If done regularly, the cleanup is fast. If not done for years, it can take days.

Dance the security tango if needed. Probably is.

Does your computer have a backup and recovery program? We've found with some of our notebooks that if you allow the notebook to make a backup but don't specify where to do it, your hard drive makes a backup of the hard drive on the hard drive.

If it's almost full and you've been moving stuff to an external, sounds like you really need a bigger hard drive.

You've only got three options:
1) Buy a bigger hard drive
2) Move stuff to the external then delete it off the laptop
3) Delete things off the laptop such as programs you don't use and files .
Make sure you empty your recycle bin, it can hold a lot of junk

I have deleted some files on a Western Digital My Book external HD. It is a LAN drive. Do not know how to undelete these files again.


If you are using windows, files are transferred to the Recycle Bin before permanent deletion unless they are too large, in which case they are permanently deleted.

After permanent deletion, recovery is not possible without specialist reconstruction software and even then may be very difficult or impossible, especially if the drive has been defragmented or formatted

I accidently Formated my 1000GB external hard drive.. Is there anything i can do to retreive my stuff???


1. DO NOT SAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO THE DRIVE!
2. Download and install Active Undelete http://www.active-undelete.com/
3. Active un-delete can recover a formatted partition, and should let you preview certain files before recovering. You can download the demo version to see if it'll work before paying for the full version.
4. I'm not aware of any free tool which can recover a formatted partition.

Hope this helps - if it did, please rate my answer!
