I checked the common issues thread and did not see this listed, and also did a couple of searches and only found a couple similar unanswered questions, so I'm hoping someone will reply to this.
My PC has right at 101GB on the hard drive, but my 500GB FreeAgent drive is nearly full...it says 442GB used. When I open the drive in Windows Explorer, it shows the Seagate Backup file at 101GB, sounds right. The Seagate sync File at 80GB. Then there's a WindowsImageBackup at 104GB. Other than that there is the Seagate file at 91MB and a couple other very small files of a few KB each. Those are the only files showing
First of all, those don't all add up to 442GB! That's not even 300GB, where is the other 150+GB??
Secondly, what is that WindowsImageBackup...how is it different than the Seagate Backup? Do I need it, is there a good reason not to delete it?
And what about the SyncRecycleBin...any reason to not delete that (or at least the files in it)?
Anything else I can do to try to maximize available space and keep it from filling up?

Wow...5 months to get a response that's no help...that's awesome!
No my problem is even worse. My drive tells me I've got 2.7GB free??!??!!? What the heck? When I go through the individual folders I adds up to 232GB...the drive supposedly has a 500GB capacity. Where the heck are my other GBs???
