disk incorrectly reporting low disk space



I am running XP PRO Version 2002 service pack 2 . I recently installed a
second hard drive of 232Gigs running as a shared network drive with the
business critical apps on it. I am getting a low disk space warning saying
that there is only 10 meg of space left on the drive this is also verified by
disk properties. However if I go to the hard drive and select all and show
properties its only reporting 45GB of used space

If others have folders on there you may not have permission to see them or contents which will
effect space size. I have seen this on a 2K server where a folder will report 0 megs because I had
no permissions to it, although there was actually stuff in there.
