Think4urself - Don't format the drive. If you haven't done so yet, empty the recycle bin / trash. This should release your space. If it doesn't, try defragging that drive. If it persists after that, you have a more serious issue.

A format will not help, but will destroy the rest of the data on the drive.

Is it ok to defragment my 2T goflex portable hard drive?


Yes. Defragmenting simply takes the pieces of empty space on the drive and groups them together. When you delete data from a drive or it is deleted as part of a program's function (such as deleting files only needed during installation) it leaves a blank space, but files are lined up on the drive. So if the files are like so:

2GB File ' 3 GB File ' 5.5 GB Free Space ' 1.5 GB File ' 4 GB Free Space

Then defragmenting would try to rearrange the files like so:

2 GB File ' 3 GB File ' 1.5 GB File ' 9.5 GB Free Space


So, in short, yes, it's okay to defragment your drive.

May be that is hidden..Go to the control pannel look for folder options and then in the view tab check the box show all files and then click ok.

I have 40gb hdd.need a partition scheme for windows xp such that i have 17GB gb for my games THANK YOU


Using the Windows XP installation disk, procede to install windows normally. In the windows setup you will get a list of options. Choose "C" to create partition. Create a 20GB partition. When that is done create another 20GB partition unless you plan on installing another Operating System such as Windows 7 later. If you want to keep XP and install Windows 7 at a later date on the same PC, then Set up 2 - 10GB partitions for Operating Systems and 1 - 20GB partitions for games. Make sure to install the games on the 20GB drive letter only so that Windows has enough space to run.

I can't delete files from my Maxtor 3200 external hard drive


The other comments are not the easiest way to free up space on the drive. The reason you aren't seeing a change in free space is because of a drive error (probably unplugged without unmounting). So First open up disk utilities and fix the hard drive (should only take 1-2 min). After the drive is fixed select erase free space (zero out data is fine for now). This usually takes about 20 min for me with a 120 gig hard drive. This allows you to have the free space without having to move all of those files around (which for me would be a problem because I have 100 gigs used on my drive, which would take forever).

Slow to load games and play movies


Most common things.
1. First check how much memory you have left on your hard drive. If most of the space is taken up, as painful as it is, you may have to delete some files.
2. If you still have most of your space available on the hard drive... check for overheating, it may be a foresight for the red rings of death.

232 gbs is normal, a 250 GB hard drive has generally less space than 250 GBs, the actual size of the disk depends on the way used to format it.
