Does that means i really don't have 2.95 GB free? Does windows 7 somehow use compression even though i tell it not to? I do have show all files enabled btw
The properties of the C drive are correct in what it tells you. When reviewing file size by going though folder properties, a lot of the files are counted multiple times. This is because of folder junctions and hardlinks. The drive properties however, does its calculation of space by examining the bitmap which is by far the most accurate.
