Lost hard drive space!
I Know this will of been asked before but i cannot find a tread that answers my question.
I have deleted several large files in the order of 5gigs each, they cannot be deleted via the recycle bin but are deleted there and then, I understand these files are still there, perhaps in a compressed state,,,,,But as a result I seem to be losing hard drive free space,,
1 Can these files be deleted permanently so that space becomes available and what programs should i use and can it be done without having to reformat.
2 How can one view the lost space should this be the case?
3 Also can files be viewed and recovered from the temp int cache and are there any progs to undertake this?
