SOURCE: WS-110 memory full but no files
well, i resolved this myself by going to the sub-menu, and formatting
the recorder to its original state. thankfully, i backed up the files
on my computer first, so i didn't lose any data, although i did have to
go in and re-set all my preferences on the recorder.
lesson: don't MOVE files from recorder to computer. copy them instead, and do the actual erasing from the physical recorder itself.
i don't know if this was the most elegant solution, but at least it did get my recorder up and running again. i'd love to hear if there is a better resolution out there.

Suggestion is to format the device to remove all unwanted data permanently.
1 While the recorder is stopped, press the MENU button for 1 second or longer. The menu opens
2 Press the + or – button to chooseSubmenu and then + button to “Format”.
3 Press the OK button. The “Cancel” indicator flashes.
4 Press the + button to choose “Start”.
5 Press the OK button. After the “Data Will Be Cleared” message is on for two seconds, “Cancel” will turn on.
6 Press the + button again to choose “Start”.
7 Press the OK button. Formatting begins and an indicator flashes
on the display.
“Format Done” displays when formatting ends

If you press and hold down the "menu" button scroll down to the FORMAT selection and press enter. This will reformat the device.
I had the same problem - I think it arose after disconnecting the IC Recorder when it became unresponsive with the computer.
Make sure you transfer all your files first to a computer or back up source.

I solved the problem by connecting my Sony IC Recorder to the USB port on my McBook Pro computer and then emptying the trash can on the Mac computer. Visually (flashing red indicator light) and audibly (the recorder's sound that indicates something being erased), it was clear that mp3 files were finally, really being erased on the Sony recorder even though the recorder's own screen display had previously shown only empty folders and no files. Dragging files to the trash can doesn't really erase them unless you also empty the trash. All dragging to the trash can does is somehow mark the files in a way that, unfortunately, makes them invisible to Sony's file detection system.
