hello everybody and welcome plonie
I agree with all the above, I operate at 9.5 GB of free space the rest is music vedios and art, a lot of art, no more then that even,
I ran a program called "batch purifier",,,, hidden in all that art was tons of junk, thumb nails for possble use, but not used by me,
once i down loaded a picture that had a small dissertation on the photo stuck back in the info, this photo used like 3 MB's !
I ran "batch purifier" and gained 1 GB of free space cleaning a whole art file..
But i have never even heard of anything near like you free'd up.
Some free ware programs and such have a event log, peck around and see if you can find a event.
another example-picasa will copy (rape) almost your whole file base and store it in picasa so they can copy your life to their sick little bronze cow if you use picasa on line to edit photos, effect---bingo you double used space, empty picasa and bingo again ton of free space, tho frags remain --I THINK not sure
Can't imagin having all the space you have, one crash and you are in trouble, I have 9-PNY hi end 32 GB flash drives, each 3 has my whole everything--so i have three back ups, one in a safe off my property
get a back up, if you buy flashes on the net-amazon, you are certian to get ripped off with boot leg junk
I have this model in 16 gb in use almost every 3 days for more then 7 years, i had to glue a new key ring on it, as plastic wore thru, and it actually flashes
this is the only brand ( PNY ATTACHE 2) i have not have had a almost daily use "Burn out" happen on me.
PS down loading a lot of GB on a flash is hard on it, they don't have fans, you can point a small fan on it or as my friend does
carefully drape a folded wet piece of paper towle over it, if you are gonna pump it for 6 hours, as, if it gets warm on the out side, it is flaming on th inside
i think this last methiod says a lot about the friends i keep and may be questionable if you over wet the paper, but i did blow out a hp after checking it for 5 hours, in morning I came back to check and it looked fine, but was fried.
