Windows 7: Windows says hard disk is full, despite TreeSize disagreeing.

17 Apr 2014   #11


Seems the issue was related to a Bloomberg app that was running. It was creating snapshots, and they were so badly fragmented that it ate up the space.

Standard Windows stuff didn't work, and we had to run a specific "defragger" that comes with the Bloomberg software before it would free the space.

Now got 40+Gb of free space, as it should be.

Thanks for your help.
