WHS displays incorrect storage space left RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 2-160G IDE drives WHS system for a total of 320G disk space for everything.  I had several PCs backed up for about 250G of used space.

    I then added a new PC to the network and tried to back it up too but was unsuccessful.  After that, the system showed about 280G of space has been used up.

    I then removed the new PC from the WHS backup list.  However, the system still showed about 280G of used space.

    I continued to remove the other PCs until there is no more PC left on backup list but WHS continued to show 280G of space used.

    Has anyone run into this problem before and found a fix for it?  Thanks.

  • If you wait until Saturday night, your server will run a cleanup task which should purge most of the space being used.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
