Hard drive...15GB, but 28?
I just installed another 40 GB hard drive that I found in my garage. The thing is, when I right click on it and click on properties, it says that the 28GB out of 40GB is occupied. But when I go to the drive, select all the files including the hidden ones, it only says 14.8. What gives?
????? reformat the drive and see
Stark Raving MOD
are you sure the drive is good?
Mod w/ an attitude
That drive must have one huge swap file and tons of temp files.

Ok, I'mma try reformating it.
I can't format, some files are in use. Winzip is one of them. There's 2 .DLLs that I can't delete, and I don't know what program is using them. I even tried booting into safe mode, but I still can't delete.
And there's some files I downloaded from a file sharing program a year back. They used to be video files, now I don't know what they are. I can't delete them. Or delete the folder they're in. I can't even click on em and choose properties. I've scanned them for viruses, but none detected.
I should just make a boot disk and format the drive from there, eh?
Use Zap, kill disk, the manufacturers utility or fdisk to repartition and reformat. Formating from within the windows environment is not a good idea. Half the time windows format can't get a floppy disk to format right.
Heh heh, yeah, you're right. I'll try out the products you stated.
