    Greetings, I have Linkstation Buffalo, and I was going to delete a few gigs file from the network drive, but I am completely surprised that the free space shows the same. Is there something wrong with it? I want on another computer and it shows the same thing.

    Thanks.

    Could be drive corruption. I'm not sure what facilities exist for doing the equivalent of a CHKDSK on that unit, but that's where I'd start.

    Never mind, I got it, In the network drive there is a folder called trashbox, I deleted everything inside and my freespace has changed, just like recycle bin.

    Problem Solved.
