Carlos, try running chkdsk. Run cmd.exe elevated, and type in "chkdsk /f"
without the quotes and press enter. You will probably have to set it to run
on next boot when prompted. Sometimes when files are deleted an incorrect
size is shown on the amount of free space you really have on a drive, and
this will correct it if that is indeed the case.
