You need to format the whole drive.

Seagate Freeagent external Hard drive won't increase free space when files are deleted?


How are you deleting the files? If you're simply moving them to the trashcan/recycle bin then they're still taking space on your drive. Try emptying the trashcan/recycle bin.

Deleted file...how can iget it again?


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended asoftech data recovery as it saved my life many times.

The thing to check is to make sure you empty the recycle bin on the computer that you used to delete the file. Once you do this it should free up the space.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

How can I recover deleted files


so long as the file has not been overwritten there are many utilties available free that will accomplish this. I have not made this mistake in awhile so i cannot tell you the best current program, but I have used this one before
http://ntfsundelete.com/ and it is quite nice. Keep in mind if you have continued to use the drive and the space that file occupied has since been overwritten you will not be able to recover it.

Deleting files does not free up disk space


Note that "deleted" items move from their location into the "Recycle Bin".

So, "empty" the Recycle Bin, in order to reclaim the space.

Or, when deleting:
1. click ONCE to select a file/folder to be deleted
2. hold the SHIFT key down
3. click the DELETE key
4. release the SHIFT key

This will "permanently" delete the file/folder, immediately freeing-up the disk-space.

Right-click on the Sandisk in My Computer and select Format... Click start and wait a little, once it's done you should have access to the entire drive.
