  1. Network drives no longer show free space text


    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone has come across this 'feature' before ?
    For some reason, its only my network drives that no longer show the amount of free space remaining under the percentage full bar in the Tile view.

    I've tried resetting my views to default as per Reset Folder View Settings to Default in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    I'm not really sure what else to try.

    Network drive not showing in elevated apps


    Hi everybody,

    I am using W10 Home and I have just done a clean install and I am in the process of customizing the system to my needs.

    The problem I step into is this:
    I connected a new network drive from within Windows Explorer and if I open:
    - Command prompt window: Drive exist and it is listed by NET USE
    - Admin command prompt window: Drive DOESN'T exist and it is NOT listed by NET USE

    I also use FreeCommander. When I launch it the UAC asks for my confirmation and the network drive doesn't show either.

    I know it sounds stupid but I can't figure out what happens... *Confused

    Thanks!

  3. 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.
