Question about Jobo Giga One 40GB Portable Storage MP3 Player
I have a Jobo Giga One 40 Gb portable disk which I use to store photographs from the CF cards from my Canon DLSR camera while I am away from home. Returning home I will copy all the photos to my PC and erase the files and folders from the JOBO device.
I do this using Windows XP Explorer/File Manager and do this by 'Shift-Delete' so that the files and folders are deleted and NOT saved in a Recycle Bin. So right now Windows tells me the the Jobo disk has over 39 Gb of free space. I have checked that there is nothing in a Recycle bina nd there are no hidden files or folders. BUT the display panel on the JOBO device tells me the I have only 1 GB of free space and if I try to copy a CF card with say 1.5 Gb of data it gives me an 'ERR' message. So my JOBO device is now unusable even though it is completely empty.
How can I get the device to reset the free space so that it correctly shows what is available ?
Hi have a nice day!
Perhaps you have used "fdisk" command to delete-create logical drives, and then format NTFS file system.
Please let me know if this way is applicable

Why don't you try to format your external drive. There's a variety of options where you can format it. The first one is Go to the My Computer then Right Click on the Icon of your External Drive then Select Format, it is better to select full erase of the the drive.
