  1. I recently bought a external hard disk of WD (My Passport Ultra) 1TB. It was working fine untill now. Now there is a problem going on. I have used only 656GB of space but it now show that I have only 4GB of storage left. Earlier it was showing 257 GB of space left from 913GB but now it shows the above. I can't understand what is the problem. If anybody could guide me it would an immense help. Thank you.

    Maybe @jobeard could help here. What OS are you running? OS X or Windows?

    You might need another storage to back up your files from that drive and then cleanly wipe that drive.

    You could use something like WinDirStat to find out what is taking all the space.
