Are you surfing the internet a lot? You may be getting a lot of temporary files. Here is something to try. In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history. This should help some. You are always going to go down in space. Windows updates automatically on a regular basis. This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.

Either you have 50 gigs of stuff on there or your hard drive space is not being properly read. U might need to reformat the drive if necessary.
Meanwhile your xbox electronics may have a limit on the size of space - so if the drive has 200 gigs of space on it and your unit will only recognize 32 gigs, then that is all it sees and can use. Capiche?
i have an iomega 320 gig external hd. went to plug it in one day and my pc said it couldn\'t read any of the files. i can still see thumbnails and view photos but can\'t transfer any data at all. please help as i stupidly put all my files on this drive. about 10 years worth of work.
is it formatted as NTFS FAT32 file system can only reconize 127 you must enable largr drive in the setup. but if you are using a image it wont give you that choice you will need to get a windows xp disk and use the driver / program disk to install you original software. you can also partition the drive into two particians to separate and it will then reconize the drives then you can mount the othe drive to a folder and then reclain all the drive space.
Since it is an old drive. It could just been formatted on 2 gig where FAT system that can run using windows OS. Just partition the rest that is remaining, activate it and then format it to make it usable. You can use third party partitioning software if you like. And before I forgot check also its jumper if setting is lock to access on 2 gig only.
Is it showing the 300gig in the properties? if yes then try to copy with command mode,If again its given problem then u need to backup your data and format the drive, then try copying.I think it will work.
"what the error actually says is, you have either run out of space, or
the backup file (.bkf) is too large for this disk. note: if the disk is
formatted with FAT32, the maximum possible size for the backup file is
limited to 4 gigs."
That error means that the FAT32 file system only allows 4GB files or smaller to be transfered. The chance that the backup file (.bkf) is larger than 4GB suggests that this file is causing your problems. You could try manually copying around that file (selecting all files from that folder except the large one) and see if that works.
Usually you will get many errors copying a drive directly as system files will be inaccessible and whatnot. Your best bet is to limit your copying to "C:\Program Files\" and "C:\Documents and Settings\", assuming you have Windows.
Well I'm gonna need more information i.e. What operating system are using with the device etc.
And also check disk management(i assume u are using either windows 2000 or XP) to see how much total disk space is available on the device. Disk Management(Right Click on My Computer then click Manage. On the left pane expand Storage then got to(click on) disk management. When there u'll see all the disk connected to your system at the time on the right pane. Look for your disk then scroll down and you'll see how much is available and how much is used!
