jolancer your math is off, it's 37.2GB - 33.5GB = 3.7(?).
hedderz the 3GB+ is used by windows. It's been hidden from you.
To clear something up, he's got a 40GB hard disk which reports 37.2GB total space. he already understands the 1024byte=1KB versus 1000byte=1KB conversion I think.
Yeah jolancer...lol you didn't look close enough he said 'Free 15MB not 15GB' hehe.....
But still...ekÆsine he says it's his storage...so windows shouldn't be using it. When I look at my 80gb storage drive it says
Add up the used and free totals on mine and it's 74.4 so if his is a logical storage drive and not the primary OS drive....then it should say for him 36.9GB Used.......
Hedderz. You just right clicked on the HD and went to 'Properties' right to find that info?
3gb in hidden files seems to be an awful lot...especially considering like I said when I go to properties on my drive all the numbers add up accordingly.
You're not highlighting some of the files....could be 3gb worth of windows needed files but that seems to be quite a lot....I select all the files on my storage drive and the number is right...but I have it selected so that windows shows all the hidden files and whatnot too.
