Win Explorer not reflecting correct HDD volume

by BAD18 / February 27, 2013 3:31 AM PST

I recently added a secondary drive to my Dell Studio XPS 8100 desktop. When the drive (K:) was formatted I copied about 400GB data files to my new K: drive from C:. I basically copied my Libraries>Documents/Pictures/Music/Video files.

When I check the Vol of K: it shows the Libraries at 400GB. But the old location, C:, doesn't show the files, but the volume of the drive isn't reduced by 400GB. It shows the same volume as before the change.

Anyone have any idea what is going on???
