Default Computer Hard Drive Help Please!! - 06-12-2006

Hi I just got a new computer and it is windows XP. I have a 700mb .exe file. Before I deleted it, my hard drive free space was 69.0GB. After I deleted the 700mb .exe file, my hard drive free space was still 69.0GB. The file deleted in like 1 second. I didn't see a difference in the memory when right clicked C:\ and went to properties. I used shift delete to delete it, so it should permanently delete it. I even searched for the file, and I couldn't find it. It's not in the recycling bin either because the bin looks empty.


help!

try disabling the "system recovery" function or something like that.

Or set explorer to show hidden files, and goto (disk from you deleted this file):\System Volume Information, and search for file there (or file with same size). (only if you need System recovery feature, else just disable system recovery).

how do you disable system recovery? I already searched for the file. and I have show hidden files on already. I can't find the system volume information.





EDIT:
NEVERMIND I found system restore and I set the space to 200MB, which got rid of the stuff

thx

the reason it wont show in the recycle bin too is because its probably too big, most files > 512meg get deleted instantly and don't go to the recycle bin
