I have a Sansa Fuze 2GB, running the latest firmware (V02.02.26A). I have a couple of related issues:1) I have loaded 3 video files on the device through the Sansa Media Converter. I have deleted 2 of the 3 files through Windows Explorer (running MSC mode) and they do not appear in Windows. On the device, though, the files still appear with filenames De105 and De107. If I try to delete them on the Fuze itself, it still won’t remove them. 2) I load many podcasts, listen to them, and delete them. However, the Fuze never seems to “release” the file space occupied by the files. So, about once a week, it appears there is 600 MB of files on it (by highlighting all of the folders and checking Properties), but checking Properties on the device may show 1.4 GB occupied. I have tried deleting the mtable.sys file and having the Fuze rebuild the database, but it doesn’t work. The only way to fix it is to copy everything off the device, format it, and copy it back on.
What do I need to do to have the device correctly delete the files and release the used space?
