Empty External Hard drive has 6GB of used disk space on a fresh partition after reformatting. WinDirStat and WizTreeWizTree Image link both show it as unknown.
I have system restore turned off. What could this be? How can I remove it.
I do not have any idea of why this was happening but I am able to resolve it via a workaround. After I saw that unknown space was proportional to partition size, I deleted all the partitions and created a new one with only 5GB and rest unallocated. The unknown space was again proportional but this time very low. Then I extended this small partition by adding all the remaining unallocated space. Here are the new screenshots from WinDirStat and WizTree. Would be great to see if anyone has a clue of what could be going on. But atleast now I do not have 6GB worth of unknown. Thanks
