I used Jdisk report and found that a VST and its soundbank took up 18GB of files so I revo uninstalled the program and deleted the 18GB folder using revo but Windows ONLY REPORTS that 2GB of free space was regained!!!! I COMPLETELY DELETED AN 18GB FOLDER JUST TO GET 2GB OF FREE SPACE BACK!!!! WTF????? if I deleted an entire 18GB directory why did I ONLY recover 2GB???
