I deleted some drives on 1 computer, did a clean up, but will not free up space those files were on. I can click on that computer and the 3 drives were deleted but capacity is still showing what it did before I deleted those drives. I tried clean up now but it stops after about 10 minutes.
Any ideas on what to do?
Thanks, MarionHere is a screen shot of the error.

For your error, try running chkdsk per this FAQ, then run a repair on the database. Note that, should there be disk errors affecting the database, there's a very high probability that you will lose some backups.
As far as reducing the size of the backup database, simply turning off backups for a particular drive on one client will have very little effect (as you've seen). Try deleting all backups for that client, followed by a backup database cleanup, then a manual backup of the client.
I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
