To free hard disk space


is the 100Gb divided into 2 partition?
since you have done the show all folder and files. and nothing else show up. you can do a defreg. to compress the drive. you may have lots of fragmented files. (that account for the lost space).

Hard disk space


Do you keep losing 1 to 2 gb / per restart? if so it may be a malicious code/virus. The only thought i can see is that the Nokia PC Suite/ Driver can just use 1 to 2 gb. Just as the Microsoft Office Suite uses around 1 to 2 GB. Hope this helps! get back to me :]

HDD


I've seen a simular problem where the disk is empty but it says there is a reduced volume remaining, In my case i ran check disk (started on restart) on the drive and it found a ton of files that were lost and restored them, so this regained the lost space. If that doesn't work, try right clicking on it in my computer and formating it.

Suppose you're using MS Windows... Click right button on (I) drive then check out "Properties" of your drive. In "General" tab you should see "Used space:" and "Free space:" If in "Used space:" is something like "24 KB" then it looks like you lost your files :( Otherwise somehow may happen that your files became "hidden" or "system" files. In "Control Panel" open "Folder Options" in tab "View" check/uncheck properties of "Hidden files and folders" and "Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)" to see what is in your (I) drive. Anyway may be helpful some program which can recover accidentally deleted files. Try to google "recover files" for such program.
