    I have a micronet 160 GB portable hard drive that I have been randomly backing up photo, itunes, and other files for the past year. Today I did a formal backup of my mac to the drive using their backup program (in anticipation of loading leopard) and deleted all the miscellaneous folders of picutres, videos and music. Even though I now have only 2 folders on my portable drive, 63 GB Mac backup and 2 GB in a Misc folder, I still show only 14 GB available. How do I reclaim/defrag or whatever to free up the rest of the hard drive? I can move drive over to my PC if I need to. Thanks!
