Sky+ free disk space not changing


Standard Member
I have a sky+160 box with a new 500gb hard disc, I decided to test it thoroughly, as it is for a friend, however when it reached 37% free it refused to go down any lower it has been using both recording channels for about 12 hours and no change. I have tries one system update and 3 planner rebuilds. So far there are about 430 programmes recoded, with another 70 set to record. I have also done a full scan with a HDD diag programe and no errors.
Any ideas?

There are/were software errors in some versions of Sky+ software that reported incorrect free space when upgraded HDD were fitted although this glitch caused no other problems. What version of EPG software do you have on the box?
