i came accross this problems 3 times now. when i make a large image file[4 gigs or more], and i try to delete it, windows tells me that it's too large to delete and recommends that i delete it completely. but when i click yes, and check my HD space, it remains unchanged; as if the file is still there. any way that i can remedy this?
i should note that my recycle bin is proctected by norton and i use the NTFS format.
