Question Odd drive error..

I'm running Windows XP, and, for some reason everytime I delete stuff from one of my harddrives, XP doesn't recognize that it has been deleted, and stays at the same value, but, then when I add in new files, it changes. So, it's continually stuck at 50 megs, and I can't delete anything to make it go higher.. Any ideas?

Default Alright, I got it.

Figured it out. Didn't realize that norton had it's "Protected files" option on. So, I just deleted them and got everything back to normal.

that explains it. you can maybe set its drive usage to minimum..like 1%.
