I have an external HDD (Western Digital 500GB)which I formatted both in quick mode and normal mode. Yet after formatting the used space is not 0. I unchecked the following options in Folder options to see why the used space is not 0:
*Hide empty drivers in Computer Folders
*Hide extensions for known file types
*Hide prtoected operating system files
I found a RecycleBin folder which had some pictures and some text files remained, although I had already formatted this External Hard Drive. I wonder why they had not been removed?!?!??! BTW I deleted these files and yet the used space is not zero?!?!?!?!
PS: I have to mention here that the used space is about 100MB which is considerable and strange!!!
Could you please let me know the reason?
Thank you very much indeed
