Subject Deleting things in the DFS
Date Mon, 13 Nov 2006 15:50:08 GMT

I was just wondering how DFS frees up disk space. Whenever I delete  
something, I notice that disk space isn't freed up immediately. If I  
restart the DFS, it's freed immediately on startup.

Is there anyway to force the DFS to free disk space w/o restarting it?
Why doesn't the DFS free up disk space immediately when things are deleted?
