I GOT A WIERD PROBLEM ON 2 OF MY SLAVE DRIVES
ONE OF THE DRIVES IS 74 GIGS IN SIZE
I HAVE ONE FOLDER ON THERE THAT TOTALS TO ABOUT 47.1 GIG
FREE SPACE ON THE DRIVE 11.8 GIG
CANT UNDERSTAND WHERE THE MISSING GIGS HAVE GONE
OTHER DRIVE IS 60 GIG IN TOTAL AND SIMILAR SORT OF PROBLEM
ANY IDEAS WOULD BE MUCHO APPRECIATED

ok first off calm down on the all caps!

Next, have you checked under disk management to see what size each partition is? and did you do a clean install of XP or an upgrade?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
