Default Did Microsoft rip me off?

So, I got my 20GB hard drive in the mail. It had a bunch of demos and videos on it. Even after deleting absolutely everything, I only have 13.0GB of space left. I can understand 17 or 18, but 13?!

Can you see hidden files? There might be some hidden files and folder in there.

If there isn't then I suggest you ring up Microsoft and tell them your problem.

I have absolutely no idea. I dont have, nor have I ever played, or have the desire to play an Xbox 360. Just a suggestion.


But, you can format anything. Just need to know how. Which I dont if there isnt an option.

There's always hidden system files which will take up some space and the rest of the missing space will probably be due to the fact that you never get exactly the space they say it is.
