I'm pretty low on hard disk space at the moment so I deleted a couple of things today, but the disk isn't reporting any more free space. I had 360MB free before, deleted just over 500MB, and had 360 still at the end.
I've run chkdsk a few times, with and without /f, with varying results... in read-only mode, it finds errors and tells me to run it with /f, so I do that and it doesn't find any errors. So then I run it read-only again and it gives me a different error message... the ones I've had are -
- Correcting errors in the Volume Bitmap.
- CHKDSK discovered free space marked as allocated in the volume bitmap.
- Correcting errors in the master file table's (MFT) BITMAP attribute. Correcting errors in the Volume Bitmap.
Running it with /f has never found any errors.
The disk is NTFS formatted, and running XP Home. Anyone got any ideas what I can do to fix this?
