windows is on Drive C

back up on Drive D

system restore turned off

backups deleted

All system images deleted

Still the Backup and Restore shows 16.28 GB of space for system image in the space usage summary

Refresh has no effect either

If there is nothing else on D, reformat it.

@Scorpion 99,
the image can be accessed with the link above

@whs,
cannot format yet... will buy an external hard drive and then i will reformat it

@xhi,
the drive itself with all the other files in Drive D shows around 231GB of space being utilized but the overall space being utilized by the disk drive is 251GB

since you didn't post any of your system specs. Could it be your factory recovery image?

@germ-x
that couldn't be, because whenever i used to decide to delete the all the system images it used to get back to zero, but not since the the past few days.. probably will have to get a external hard drive put the D-drive files on it and then format drive-D,
its not that big a deal but it would have been good to have around 16GB back, if anyone finds out how to fix this then cool, if not then no problem

Have you run a chkdsk D:\ /r on it. It could just be a correctable error in the indexes.
