Gentoox has stolen ~4gb

Post by Robbo » Mon Feb 28, 2005 7:09 am

G'day,
I installed Gentoox over ftp, by just copying the right files as stated in the tutorial... before I copied over the files I have over 4gb free on E:... that all worked fine and it would start fine, however during the first time run script thing I set the wrong resolution... so I thought I'd just delete the files and copy them back over the start again...

however, after deleting the files E: now only has ~900mb free, not enough to copy gentoox back on, what the hell happened to the other 4GB?!?

I checked in boXplorer, it says the same thing, but it also says that all the files (it can see) on E: only equal 25mb...

Did gentoox make some hidden files or something? How the hell do I get my space back so I can put gentoox back on?

BTW, I dont have anything else installed on E: just the cache, tdata and udata folders (which equal 25mb)
