Re: Missing over 300 GBs of space on HDD

Hey Folks,

So I got the cable and hooked up the aios to my comp. It popped up like any other external drive. I went into disk management and for fun I opened disk cleaner. To my absolute surprise there were 345 GBs in Old Chkdsk Files. Exactly the amount of space I calculated I was missing. I deleted them and this freed up the space. I ran a defrag analyze and as aasoror suspected it was 0% fragmented. I do keep this player as a mapped drive to my pc so I am assuming that those chkdsk files showed up as a result of a few crashes from power failures and stuff over the years. At least now I know to check on that once in a while though this is a newer computer than my last one and I am not crashing it as much LOL.

Thanks all - great to have the mystery solved.

Mick.
