  1. Contents not visible from J Drive but shows space occupied


    I am running Windows10Pro 1607 version. I have two hard disks on my Desktop PC. In the second HardDrive on Partition J - the total space is 199 GB and unutilised space as 189 GB. But when I open this partition, there are no contents visible there. There are two hidden folders namely - 1 Recycle Bin and 2 System Volume Information. Recycle Bin's size is 100 MB and System Vol.Information size is 0. But the space occupied by this Drive(J) is 10GB, out of which only 100MB is occupied by Recycle Bin.
    I want to know what are the other contents that I cannot see there. How to view any other files if it really exists there. Before I format this drive, I want to make it sure that I am not deleting or formatting contents which are important to me. Please help.
    Thanks in advance,
    Ashok K Bagaria

  3. Cannot See Content on Windows Phone 8

    I think the windows phone desktop app is broken Contents not visible from J Drive but shows space occupied :(



    For me it shows the space that is occupied on the phone like so much and so is for music, video and such. However, it does not show the actual contents. The Windows 8 (metro) app shows the contents. It's odd!

    Contents not visible from J Drive but shows space occupied

    Can you post a picture of your disk management ?
    Folders $RECYCLE.BIN and System Volume Information are automatically created when disk/Partition are formatted by windows ever since W7 and maybe Vista.
    $RECYCLE.BIN can be eliminated or size allocated for it changed in bin properties:
