Where's my space?

My portable hard drive said it was full so I have just deleted 28Gb of rubbish off it but when I tried to transfer some data onto it I am told there is still no room. How do I get the room, surely the 28Gb should be there?

The hard drive does not show a bin and the laptop bin is empty!!

USe WinDirStat to view what taking up the space.

Use Ccleaner to recover space. Google it and download from website.
