Dear Friends. Every time I try to do an update or mirror, after comparing 2 external disks, error "lack of space" appears. This happens despite the fact that the destination disk should delete more files than would eventually be added. In the current case, it tells me that it needs space because it requires 45 GB and the available space is 96 GB. What happens?
TIA
Jaime

You're probably moving deleted/overwritten files to the "Recycle Bin" in which case no disk space is released.

It is understood. I'm usually deleting files. The second disc is for backup. I think freefilesync does not work for me. I will have to copy manually on a regular basis. Many thanks.
