forgetting backup set does not free space?


Recommended Posts



I use EMC Retrospect which came with the WD Pro Edition External Drive.


I tried to Delete old backups by forgetting the snapshots, then Grooming the Set and then Forgetting the Backup set and finally erasing the Catalog File. The size of Data that was groomed was about 15GB but when I checked the free space using the Properties tab under windows explorer, it hadn't changed?


Any ideas why?
