I have maxtor one touch iii 1Terabyte. How do I reduce content to increase stora

I have a 4 yr old Maxtor One Touch III with1 Terabyte of storage. Recently I have tried to remove old video files (it is primarily used as for video storage) and when I do so, the storage space does not increase. Has anyone had similar problems or knows the fix for this?
Thanks for the help in advance!

  1. You can use this program to show you what is taking up space on the drive.

    Deleting files should free the space, you could try holding "Shift" before hitting delete which will skip the recycle bin, but I think windows may do that on external drives anyway.
  2. Thank you! I will give this a try - but is the http://windirstat.info compatible with Mac?
