    Anyone know why my c drive properties should say 30Gb full when totalling up individual folders and files in the c drive window (including hidden files) only comes up to about 20Gb?
    I have a 60Gb HDD and am trying to back it up onto a partition on the same drive using Powerquest Image Drive's setup wizard. It keeps coming up with a disc error message saying that the disc is full. This occurs during the builing of an image file, long after after a partition had been automatically made.
    Thanks in advance to any answers.

    Hey thanks! I had previously emptied the Recycle Bin. After your reply,I looked in the Norton Recycle Bin and emptied the 'protected files' and I've suddenly got 13Gb back!! Thanks.

    Norton has their own recycle bin?

    soon as you install certain aspects of norton systemworks (on my pc) it renames recycle bin as norton protected recycle bin...

    basically a bin with more features... :)
