Partitioned HDD Says 714GB Free Of 714GB With 162GB Used.

3 posts in this topic

Hard to say for sure, but make sure you're not hiding any system or hidden files (or anything else for that matter) in Windows Explorer. 162MB of 714GB seems like about the right size for the MFT for the NTFS file system, but on an empty drive it's a little odd.

I would also suggest perhaps something that scans the drive at a lower level, like spacemonger.

Thanks for the reply.

I had the view hidden file and system files turned on.

I have formatted it, deleted the partition and reinstalled windows now.

It's working now.

Thanks for the help anyways.
