    sorry, I was a little confused about what your total drive size is. The actual amount of space on a drive is a little less than reported to start with. for example, a brand-new 120GB hard drive with nothing on it actually has a bit less than 120GB. all manufacturers do that. that accounts for a few GB. but I couldn't tell if you were saying you had 42GB occupied or only 18GB.
