I recently removed a large 55gb backup file from my HD, however the free space available on that drive has not changed. WHY?
I am running XP pro. the HD is a 160gb samsung sp1614n.
Can anyone explain a) why this is? b) how do i get this space back?
Regards
JD

Do you have norton installed? I ask this because i had a simalar prob and it turned out that it was down to norton protected files once I cleared these out and turned off that protection i haven't had the same prob since
