If I highlight a file, right click it, then choose "delete", the file deletes just fine. And the space on the hard drive, is freed up.
But if I highlight a file, then press the delete button on the keyboard, the file goes missing, but the space is not freed up.
As an experiment, I chose a partition with 7.1 gigs available.
Copied a large file to it. That left 6.9 gigs available.
I then highlighted, right clicked and chose delete. The file was gone and available space was back to 7.1 gigs.
I copied the same large file back to that partition. Again, only 6.9 gigs available space.
I highlighted the file, and then hit the delete key, and the file disappeared. However, even after reloading... And even after rebooting, The available disk space remained at 6.9 gigs.
Does anyone have any idea how I get that space back again ?
