I’m having an issue when trying to remove content off my external hard drive I just bought. It’s a My Book Essential 2TB and when I want to add something, like a folder of a tv series season for example, I drag it into the My Book Drive.
I don’t bother going into the other folders, it’s easier this way to just drag it in. So if I don’t want lets say Two and a half men season 1 anymore, I right click and delete it. It’s gone (from what I can see), but when I open WD Smartware, where it shows the breakdown of whats on your PC and whats on your hard drive, the size does not go down.
I could be at 20 gigs. And then delete something thats 10 gigs. Why does it continue to show 20 gigs? Where do I have to go to properly remove it.
I’ve ejected and closed WD Smartware, but it continues to show the size when it theory it should drop if I removed that content. So I’m pretty sure it’s not being properly removed and it exists on the drive somewhere, but I cannot locate it.
