Deleted material not deleted...

When I delete material, the material is gone but the space is still full. I have deleted everything off of my FireLite and it still says I only have less than a GB of space left. How do I delete material and get it back to full capacity?

Connect the device.
Open 'My Computer'.
Double-click the icon for the device, to "open" it.
Click on a file/folder that you wish to delete.
Hold down the SHIFT key, and press the DELETE key.
Click 'Yes' to confirm that you really want to delete, bypassing the 'Recycle Bin'.

Where did all my disc space go?


Empty your "Recycle Bin" -- it's possible that the files have just "moved" from their original location, and have _not_ really been "deleted".

Or, right-mouse click on "My Computer", and choose "Manage". Click through "Disk Management (local)", and you'll be able to "delete" the partition(s) on the drive, and then "create" a "new" partition, which, of course, will be 100% "empty".

Cant put songs on mp3 anymore


how did you delete them?
did you delete them instantly from the file page or through the program they probably gave you with your mp3?

Also, if you removed your mp3 without clicking the "safely remove hardware" button before disconnected your mp3 with the computer, than it may have caused confussion with your hardware.

I have a macbook and I was storing my old computers  (ibook g4) music and photos on my firelight drive. This morning I went to backup some of my new photos. It would not let me put anything else on it and...


I had a similar problem in the past. If you have deleted files from the firelight drive, you need to empty the trash while the drive is plugged in for them to be officially gone. Otherwise, the "deleted" files still take up space on your drive.

Hope this is helpful!
