Had a few ISO downloads that would not boot on newer PC, so I deleted them thinking will just delete them outright, w/o parking them first in the trash bin (a la ..recycle bin)
but when ck'd to see used space it shows almost 100%, even though I deleted some
3 GB worth, but it not seem to reclaim the space as free...after which I deleted a 82 MB file, this time a - move to trash, then empty bin, and it reclaimed the space (82) as free space.
Question is : what happened to all that 3 GB deleted, why don't I show it as free space?
Is there a disk cleanup like in win, or will it show as free, on reboot ?
Not seeing such post elsewhere.
Any help, much appreciated.

80 GB hd -guess unpartitioned free space not showing....I might have to boot into XP, and see what Paragon Partition will display (not listed a Slackware 9.1 on a 5GB hda3 -that went surprisingly easy install, just to disapoint and not do- startx (screens not found -fatal error).
Mdk 10 config'd the Nvidia FX5200 just fine (w/o any input like xmodule=nv).
