WD 8TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive deletion problems

So I’m deleting files from my ebook and I had 300 gb free, I waited a few days deleted some more and now I only have 95 GB free, what’s going on? I checked the recyling bin in the drives and they’re empty, I deleted my recycle bin on my pc. Can someone help please? I’m going crazy. I checked it for viruses, checked the hard drive, all ok.

Hi @KieranDarko,

Have you opened a Support Case? If not opened, for more information, please contact the WD Technical Support team for the best assistance and troubleshooting:

If you’re using windows, try clearing your cache, run a disk defrag and and restart your PC.

Open task manager, if it still says you disk is at a 100% capacity you might have to change your hard disk.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!
