I did post this on the networking forum but only got one reply. AMD quad core processor 3GB RAM, Vista Home Premium
I have set up an Iomega Network (360GB) HDD drive on an ethernet connection. All working fine except that when I click the properties tab this indicates that the disk is 40% full. If I reconnect using a USB connector then this tells me that the disk is empty as does the Iomega disk utility manager(this is correct) any ideas what I may have done wrong please?
Have you tried adding a file to the drive via Ethernet? Maybe it will update the disk space properties then? Sometimes these drives give false readings for disk space when empty. My Lacie network drive did that when I first got it - worked fine once I started putting data on it.
Or possibly the usage is referring to the built-in software on the drive but 40% doesn't sound right for that.
Clonnen, Thanks for the help. To respond to your queries: Have added a file by ethernet. Still indicating 40% usage. Drive mapped as a network drive and letter assigned. Firstly I connected by ethernet, I then disconnected the drive in my computer and connected via usb. When I open properties for the drive connected by ethernet is when I am told that the disk is 40% full (Right click on disk in explorer, select properties). When I disconnect and reconnect via USB then am told that the disk is empty. If I run the disk management utility provided by Iomega then it tells me that the disk is empty, I have formatted the disk using this utility.
