I'm using Windows XP and I have a 4 GB flashdisk. My flashdisk has 3 GB used space. But, when I select all items there and click "Properties", the "Size on disk" only says 2 GB. Then, when I check again, 1 GB of my files are gone. I can say that they are not hidden, because I set "Show hidden files and folders" at options.

How to retrieve these 'hidden' 1 GB of files?e
