    I have a 2gb drive. I put on a video that took about 800gb. I deleted that video, but it still says the space is taken. How do I get that space back?

    Mad compression yo!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but data is still there even if you just remove the drive. You still have to empty the trash.
