I was using the figures presented in the listings column 205 gb capacity with 195 gb free space. If this varies from the capacity shown on the drive map after deleting windows.old then double check the listings given with free Partition Wizard bootable CD as Disk Mgmt can err but PW CD is usually correct.

Poor capture quality, Greg. It actually says 285gb, not 205gb.

Thanks Derek. In my defense I should tell you I've been stranded in the DFW airport since tornadoes and a hail storm damaged 111 planes canceling all flights yesterday afternoon. I had little sleep and should have zoomed in on the listings column since it looked like a perfect zero. I also should have cross-checked it with the size given in the drive map. Embarrassing in front of the boss, but hopefully excusable.

Glad it worked out for you.
