My D: drive is a data drive that mostly contains various TV shows that I've recorded OTA. The plan is to watch them, delete them, and reformat the drive, but I seem to record new shows at least as fast as I watch older ones. I've been living with this problem for quite awhile now.

Anyway, I'm currently traveling for a few weeks, so I'm away from the problem child, although I can remote into it, if necessary. I'm ok with ignoring it for now and maybe it'll either get better or get worse, all on its own.

Are you logged in as admin..? How many users are there on your system?

Since it's a data video drive, why not format and clean it now? Or perhaps delete the whole partition then format.

rosevaldez,
Yes, my account has admin priviledges. There are a few other user accounts, (and I've tried each of them, including the normally hidden Administrator account), but there's no difference.

The other accounts are there simply to control access by specific other people. They never actually log in locally; just remotely when they need to access some video. I tried each of those accounts, just in case, but no luck.


Britton30,
User nilank suggested the same thing, blowing everything away and recreating the partition and the file structure. Unfortunately, I don't have anywhere to stick the contents temporarily, so that has to wait.

Unable to display current owner
I suspect this to be network-related, offline-related and possibly to an abandoned account. Can someone shed some light on this?
