Hi Folks..why does windows automatically recover unused disk space? I just closed my windows mail, small window pop up saying recovering unused disk space, then it disappears, it happens rarely, I do have 890GB left of free space

It is simply de-fragmenting your email file. A normal occurrence every 100 launches.

Thanks windude99.
