    Incorrect Harddrive Free Space Value


    Hi all,

    It seems I've stumbled across some trouble on my new machine. Somehow 1.4 gigs of data has appeared on my [E:] drive and I can't seem to locate the said data.

    Is there anyway to locate the 1.4 gigs of data on this drive? I already tried checking with "Hard drive management" through Computer Management and WizTree, but nothing shows up.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Sorry for the late response. Is that a function of Wiz Tree, or a completely different utility altogether?

    If it's the latter, then please provide a link, as i'm sure it could potentially benefit other people who have the same problem as me.

    Alright, instead of using WizTree, I used "SpaceSniffer" instead.

    These are the results;
