  1. Anyway to show actual space from drives?


    So, as you can see in the screen shot below, I have 3 map network drives. . The 2 i have questions about is Dropbox and OneDrive. I mapped networked them. Is there any possible way I could make them show exactly how much space I have left from those, instead of it giving me the space left from my actual hard drive?

  2. Lost space of Pen Drive

    Hello,

    Thank you for bringing up your query on Microsoft Community.

    We regret the inconvenience caused to you.


    • Have you tried connecting to a different computer?
    I suggest you to connect the USB flash drive to a different computer and check.

    First back up all the data from your USB drive to another location.

    I suggest you to connect the USB flash drive to a different computer and check.

    Let us try the following steps, and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to refresh the drive letter and then try to rescan the drives that are connect to the computer and check.

    To refresh drive letter:

    • Open Computer Management (Local).
    • In the console tree, click Computer Management (Local), click
      Storage, and then click Disk Management.
    • Click Action, and then click Refresh.
    • Once you have refreshed connect the new zip drive and to update hardware information, click Rescan Disks instead.
    Step 2: For unallocated space on USB drive


    • Press the Windows key, and type Diskpart.

    • Click the result to open the DiskPart command prompt window.

    • In the command prompt window, type list disk and hit Enter.

    • The removable USB drive or hard disk will be shown under
      Disk 1.

    • Type in the following commands and hit Enter.
    select disk 1

    Clean

    create partition primary


    • The first command selects your removable USB drive.

    • The Clean command deletes all the current partitions present on the USB drive.

    • The Create primary partition creates a fresh partition and allocates all the unallocated space on this fresh partition.

    • Type Exit to close the command prompt window.

    • Unplug your USB drive and plug it back again.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know the status, we are glad to assist you further.

    Discrepancy between 'Used Space' on C drive and total of actual folders/files

    According to 'Properties' in Windows Explorer, my C drive (one of four partitions on my primary drive) has 296GB 'Used Space' and 272GB 'Free Space', giving a total partition size of 568GB. However, if I add up the total space occupied by all the folders
    and files on C drive that are listed in Windows Explorer they come to roughly 44GB. (The largest folder is Windows (19.5GB), followed by Users (9GB) and Program Files (5.8GB). The rest of the folders are smaller than this.). Nearly all my applications, data,
    photos, videos, backups etc are on the other three partitions on the primary hard drive or on a secondary internal hard drive.

    Can anyone suggest what accounts for the HUGE discrepancy between the reported 'Used Space' and the total of the actual folders/files? I first noticed this when backing up my C drive using Acronis TrueImage, which yields a back up file of 218GB - presumably
    the 296GB with some compression. A few months back I recall that the Acronis backup files were sized at around 60-70GB, so there's something funny going on! If there is some giant folder or file that is lurking on my C drive, what could it be and why isn't
    it showing up in Windows Explorer?
