I was coding film and didn't notice the disc (d-partition, actually) was running out of space. Now the partition is full and XP won't let me delete anything ("Not enough free disc space")! Have deleted a big file from the command prompt but XP still reports the disc is full - even though the file is gone using the XP explorer, as well. Can't get into safe mode either, get stuck :(

I can use the pc without problems - all apps are on C where I have lots of free space - but can't do anything with the D partition. Defragmenting doesn't work, either, same error msg.

The pc is a fast laptop running XPpro, SP2.

Appreciate any suggestions! Partition Magic the only way out?!
