I've been getting this error message for a couple weeks on my ASUS laptop which runs Windows 7. I had some videos saved in the output folder, but I deleted them - they appeared to have become corrupt anyway, but I'm still getting the error message. In the Computer window, the D-drive appears to have 4.00 kb of 153 gb available but in the System Protection for Data (D) window it says that only 23.4 GB of 46.16 available GB are being used.  I enabled the viewing of hidden files and unchecked hiding file extensions for unknown files, but still don't see any files on the D-drive that would be taking up anywhere near that much space. I've tried running disk cleanup, cleaning up system files, and downloading a recommended disk diagnostics program from the Western Digital site - Data Lifeguard - which didn't come up with anything.




Can anyone help me?

If you aren't running an antivirus, try trendmicro housecall or malwarebytes - both offer free scan.
