i realise that hamluis;)
there arent any videos , music or documents on that partition.. only sysytem and program files.
which is why i am sure there is something odd going on.
after deleting a few more files , ( still no change in space free- and yes i did put the trash out!!)tried another defrag stopped -said disk might be corrupted.
run chkdsk/f which i did.and deleted all but most recent restore points .
the space went up to 4.46gb enough space to run a another defrag
now have 4.46gb , but there were many files which came up as being unable to defragment
the largest of those being 4.0gb
