I used 16 and a 32 GB disks (normally used for capture video) to transfer some files from desktop to laptop. After editing, I needed to xfer an 8.5 GB MPEG back.
I deleted all the files on 16 GB disk. It now shows 16GB free, but 8 GB in use. Really.
Deleted all the files on the 32 GB (which had been almost completely full in the previous xfer operation). It shows Used space 32GB, Free Space 29.7 Used Space.
I wish I could attach the Windows Disk Properties screen shot. It boggles the mind.
I tried formatting the SD’s, to no avail.
I had no problem deleting the files on the SD’s when I xferred the files to the laptop from the desktop.
What’s going on? More to the point, how do I correct the situation?
Thanks for any enlightenment.
