I moved all data off my 300gb E drive to another drive for temporary safe keeping until I can swap out this drive for a larger 2tb drive. Odd thing is the 300gb HDD still shows that there's 69gb of used space. But all files on this drive have been deleted so where's 69gb of data? I checked off "show hidden files" & there are 2 folders, System Volume Information & $RECYCLE.BIN
(one has 0 bytes & the other 1.17kb of data). I checked Disk Management & it shows E: is 279gb NTFS & healthy. Restarting did help either.
What else needs to be checked?
