    Disk size in sub-folder larger than the actual disk capacity


    I would like to request for some assistance in regards to a file sizing issue I have experienced. I randomly checked through my folders and discovered one of them showing weird size properties. It is a sub-folder within the HDD partition and it is showing sizes way larger than the individual disks size. Has anyone encountered such an issue and how were you able to solve it?Inset is a picture showing the disk-management screenshot of the main folders, the size properties of the target partition and the size properties of the target sub-folder, respectively.

    :)

    Size on disk much larger than actual size - how to fix ?

    My folders of photos are showing properties of a much larger size than is physically possible on my laptop, this is not showing up as an issue on the laptop, but I can't back them up effectively as have already used up a 2TB drive for a small portion
    of them ! I've seen some comments on forums about files being allocated 32mb regardless of their actual size, checking a few individual files, this looks likely to be the problem. Advice on how to fix this, so the actual file size is recorded, would be helpful.

  3. Disk management console view is not up-to-date

    i dont know how to fix your disk management, but i can fix your partition problems...




    open up Command Prompt with admin rights. (Right click, run as admin)


    enter in
    DISKPART
    list disk

    then find the Disk number for your Raid array... lets call it number 7 ( you can tell what disk is what by the total size)
    type in

    Select Disk 7
    List Partition (will give you a list of all the partitions..)
    Select Partition 1 (im assuming you only have 1 partition on Disk 7) repeat this step if you have more partitions.
    ASSIGN


    that should get the array up and running ready to use.


    EDITED.

    any problems, post back ^^


    Still EDITING *Stick Out Tongue Disk size in sub-folder larger than the actual disk capacity :p

    side question, have you tried restarting the PC?

  4. Disk size in sub-folder larger than the actual disk capacity

    100% Disk Capacity

    Hey,

    I bought a new Asus gaming laptop, but whenever I use my laptop it is always slow, lagging and unresponsive sometimes. Then I discovered that my disk capacity is always 100% although I am not using any heavy programs. I tried many solutions suggested on
    the web but never actually worked. So please can you help me find a proper solution?
