    Were you burning CD's or using any imaging software ? ?
    These processes "mount" free space as a virtual drive and in order for it to be freed up it needs dis-mounted.
    As many programs handle this differently we will need more info.
    In the meantime DLoad Maxblast...Maxtor's HDD utilities.
