    Disk Management shows this:

    I'm running dism and sfc now, will see if that makes any difference. If not, what else could I look at or try?

    Hi there,


    I can't really find anything out of order here, could you please point me to the problem?

    Looks OK to me too, what is whacked? List disk lists the physical disks, their size and un partitioned free space.

    Maybe you are confusing disks with volumes (partitions)?

    I believe you are right and I am confusing disk with volume.

    So my idea of using diskpart to see how much free space there is on a volume won't work.

    No, doesn't look like it will work. Even if you select disk and list partition, it doesn't show free space.

    I'm drawing a blank. How would you show the size and free space for a volume from a Command Prompt other than dir?

    Diskpart detail volume, will show the free space on the volume,although it's not that detailed.

    detail vol works, thanks:

    Code:
    DISKPART> detail vol

    I wanted something quick, chkdsk takes too long.
