Hi Everyone,

I am using Windows 7 (x64) and I am getting incorrect disk usage reporting through Explorer. I am looking at a 1TB disk, which with partitioning considered is showing as a 931GB disk - however even though I am using only 421GB of the disk space Windows 7 (Explorer) is showing that there is only 202GB free on the disk!



As you can see above I selected all of the files on the disk, right clicked, selected Properties, and the results of my enquiry are shown (superimposed over the Explorer view).

If anybody has any suggestions on how to correct this issue they will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo
