I have a 20GB color screen iPod. I recently used it to transfer some files form one computer to another and now it shows that the disk space is still in use even though i have removed the file.

Is there a way to get that space back??

Thanks

Yeah I learned that with my pen drive moving it around from OSX to Windows back and forth. It is like using the bathroom and not flushing the toilet and wondering why it still stinks.

i was about to say the same thing. my cpu graphics class uses macs, but i have photoshop on my pc at home and not on my powerbook, so when i transfer stuff all the time, back and forth, it's just like you said. so i back it up and reformat it and the drive's good to go. haha.
