    One Drive Storage Space used Suddenly increasing?


    I went to bed last night with my One Drive storage space 80% used. I turn on my computer this afternoon and somehow my storage space being used has leapt to 92%! I've been deleting photos, and old files, but the amount of storage spaced being used isn't going down! I'm at my wits end in terms of deleting stuff that my web browser Microsoft one drive claims is taking up the most space as I went and deleted most of that a week ago and emptied the recycle bin on both my one drive and my computer. This means I have absolutely no clue in terms of What caused the 12% jump of storage space being used. Any assistance given I'm grateful for.

    :)

    Storage Spaces not showing increased size..

    Hello, Size was increased via storage spaces. I was able to fix the issue. It seems like size increase via storange spaces is not working. I manually have to reboot and then use following command to show the correct size.

    C:\ > DISKPART

    DISKPART> List Volume

    DISKPART> select volume # (this is the number of the volume listed by the above ‘List Volume’ command)

    DISKPART> extend filesystem

    DISKPART> exit

    This fixes the storage pool to show the correct size. But its really annoying to do that every time you increase the size of the pool.

    Thanks

  3. External Drive using storage spaces does not work on my new Win 10 PC?

    Hi Leo,

    Storage Spaces not only increase storage over time as you add drivers to your PC, it will also help you in protecting your data from drive failures. To isolate your concern, we'd like to know if you were getting any error messages when trying
    to connect the external drive to your new PC. Also, can you tell us what troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter to perform a diagnostic process on your system that will check and fix issues related to Storage Spaces. To do this, please follow the steps below:

    • Type troubleshooting in the Search bar, then press
      Enter.
    • Click View all from the left pane.
    • Locate and click Hardware and Devices to run the troubleshooter then follow the next steps.

    Furthermore, here is a link for more information about the Storage
    Spaces in Windows 10

    We'll be looking forward to your response.
