  1. It appears that you're deleting too much stuff for Mailwasher Pro. I ran CCleaner and told it to clean MW, and got rid of LOTS of files, and now it seems to have lost a lot of classification knowledge. Now I have to mark lots of new emails as good rather than it already knowing it as it did previously. Sadly, I did not save the list of files deleted but I guess I can try it again (after copying them so I can put them back) and ask what shouldn't be deleted over on the Mailwasher board.
  2. Out of curiosity, was something done to address this issue in the recent v2.02 update? I was finally able to compress the disk without losing space. BTW, I installed a new version of Treesize Free, and interestingly it offered to start itself in Administrator mode this time. When It did that, it saw a bunch of missing files and I was no longer missing allocated space on the drive. But there was still a problem with missing free space.
  3. Yes, the table recommended 4k for a 1TB drive, but obviously that is what causes the problems. Oh well.
  4. OK, so I decided to try the defrag again after I got the free space back up to 30%. It's been running for 12+ hours, and my free space dropped down to 10% fre (80gb). I paused the defrag, then tried the same cleanmgr (twice) and the space is not freed up. I am thinking it might be the CHKDSK /F that recovered the space, but I can't run that because I only paused the defrag and CHKDSK says that something else is using the drive and I do not want to let it dismount it. I read the stuff about 4k cluster sizes (which is what the drive has) but is there a way to fix that without destroying the contents of the drive? I think the big problem I have is a 180gb Win7 data migration file on the disk, it was what I used for transferring data from my old machine to this one. I'd rather not delete it. I probably have space on another drive to move it off the external drive so the defrag can run, and then I could put it back, but that will probably take a while to copy back and forth. They claim on the MS page that there is a user defined limit to the size of these shadow copy files. Any idea how to set the limit so it's low? Oh, and I am only at 38% complete, and my number of fragments has gone from 1815 at analysis to 2931 now.
  5. Thanks. It was also Windows 7 Pro. I ran the cleanup, and it did not seem to solve the problem. Then I decided to go to the backup/restore program since I have backups stored there. It also claimed there was not a lot of free space. I did the cleanup a second time, and now my space is back (about 200gb worth). So I am not sure if the cleanup took longer than expected, or was not reflected immediately, but the good news is I have my free space back. Thanks.
  6. I posted this in the bug reporting forum a couple of weeks ago and someone replied today that they were also seeing it. I am posting it here to see if it is more prevalent and if so, maybe it can get some attention. I was defragmenting my external drive. The partition I was doing is 781gb and was not close to being full. After running overnight and not getting very far, I cancelled it this morning and figured I would move a couple of large files to another disk so it would have an easier job of it. When I tried to restart it as a quick defrag, it warned me that there was less than 10% free space on the disk, which seemed very strange since I did not get the warning the first time. I ran Treesize on the drive and it's only finding 358.5gb in files on the disk, but both it and Defraggler are claiming I only have 10.8gb in free space (and I should say that it was 13gb before I started and then cancelled a quick defrag. CHKDSK and the internal disk check from Defraggler claim there are no errors on the disk. How do I get back my missing disk space???
  7. Maybe it's time to post this in the normal discussion forum and see how prevalent this is. I am disappointed that there has not been any acknowledgment of the problem.

  9. I just installed this great tool and I noticed that the Defragmenting Status got to 100% long before the process actually ended. In my case it ran for 10 minutes longer before it actually completed. Is this a known problem? I have a screen shot but I'm not sure it's all that informative (plus I did not take it when it first started so it only shows one file remaining).
