Hi there I have a serious problem on my PC. I have two 40 GB hard disk with 4 ~20 GB partitions and two small ones on each for the swap file and temp inet files. I have (had) Norton Utilities installed which includes Norton Unerase Protection. I moved about 17 GB from one partition to another. Although the freed disk space was only about half = 8 GB more were free. The reason is simply to be found by searching the deeps of your hard disk. Norton Unerase has a folder called x:\recycler\nprotect whicht contains several GBs of data (x reflects the different partitions). These files can't be deleted by any possibility. I tried Wipe Info, Evidence Killer and many other things even the good old dos prompt but the files couldn't be removed. Now I am not able to move back my data to the old partition because not enough space is free. Is there anyone of you who experienced the same problem ? If you can help me how to delete these files please reply to this post. To your information... I am using XP Pro and NTFS File System on the 20 GB partitions and FAT16 on the two small partitions on which the error doesn't occur. Thanks for your help!
