Dear Sir,
There is a folder on my C: drive of a removed user in C:\Documents and Settings. It containes a number of large files, totalling 6.5 Gb. In Explorer this folder does not show up, but a disk-analyzer utility shows them as 'unrecognized'. Defragging the drive did not make them go away.
Can you tell me how to free up the diskspace?
Thanks and regards
Bart Mudde

Servidor, suspect the files simply haven't been written over yet. When files are 'deleted', they're not erased. The space they occupy in memory is simply tagged as 'available'. Look at the disk space available in Windows for the truth regardless of what any 3rd party software says.
