Question about LaCie (300950) 400 GB Hard Drive
Highlighting the contents of the drive and checking "properties" I find 186G of files listed, which should mean I have plenty of room. However, if I just go to "my computer" and right-click on the drive and check properties, it is over 400G used and only 1G free. I very much doubt I have 400G of files, and I do have "show hidden files" activated. What is the problem? I have noticed earlier that when I have checked capacity it shows that there is only 1G or so free, even when I had less than 100G on the drive, but I could still add things so I didn't have a problem with that. Thoughts, solutions?
I think that you have a partitioning table or formating problem on the hard drive. You can backup your information and format it to correct this error. WARNING: To format a hard drive means that all the information in the drive will be deleted. You should copy all the files that you want to keep in another drive before Formating your 400GB hard-drive. Windows Steps: -Go to "My Computer" -Right Click on the 400GB Drive -Click on Format... -Under Format Options: Check "Quick Format" -Press Start

Here´s a thought! You can try running chkdsk cause maybe your freespace is being reported incorrectly! Open command prompt: Go to Start->Run then type cmd and press enter Run the chkdsk utility: where x is the drive letter of the removable drive at the prompt type chkdsk x: /f and press enter now windows will scan for filesystem errors and fix any if found. Also on another note, items in your recycle bin count towards the amount of used space! hope this helps regards, babb
