  1. Samsung D3 Station Showing Wrong Used Space


    I have a 5TB Samsung D3 External Drive which appears to be showing the wrong amount of used and free space. The total capacity is showing correctly.

    If I open the drive and select all the files(inc. hidden)/right click/properties it shows 2.17 Tbt file space which appears correct.

    If I go to This PC/Right click Drive/Properties/ It shows 2.98 Tb used space. This is about 800 Gbt too much!

    These are the screenshots from Disk Management. The total disk capacity is showing correctly.

    Mini Tool Partition Wizard shows something similar.

    Windows says the latest driver is already installed. I have run Disk Check and no errors were found.

    I am tempted to reformat, but I would only like to try that as a last resort as it would probably take 1-2 days to copy all my data back.

    It's possible that windows is giving the wrong figure for the used space, or there might be another explanation. Are there any suggestions how I can solve this mystery and recover the "missing" 800 Gbt??

    Your thoughts would be appreciated

    Kind regards
    Chris

    China has lost control of its space station?

    China's out-of-control space station will crash into Earth this coming Easter weekend, according to the European Space Agency.

    The agency's Space Debris Office has said Tiangong-1 will hit somewhere across our planet's northern hemisphere between March 30 and April 2.

    Previous estimates suggested the rogue station, which is carrying highly toxic chemicals, would enter Earth's orbit on April 3.

    According to experts tracking the station, it has the highest chance of crashing along a narrow strip around latitudes of 43 degrees north and south.

    This includes a number of highly populated cities including New York, Barcelona, Beijing, Chicago, Istanbul, Rome and Toronto.
