Cannot find data to erase from harddrive

I have reformatted the hard drive, installed the necessary programs, but cannot eliminate the data.

In fact,  I CANNOT FIND IT.

"My computer" shows the hard drive ()x200) as having 22.6 gb available out of 320 gb. But whan i open up folders to find what is there, nothing appears except "Folder is Empty".

Of course, the computer is slow as molasses and I need to clean it out.

I have backed up the datea to a
SATA drive so I no longer need it.

Anyonw have any ideas? 

Thankis

Re: Cannot find data to erase from harddrive

Let me guess, you use window to format the driver?

 

You may want to take a look at clicking on the window icon, right click on computer>-manage->Disk management and see if there are any partitions that are unformatted.

 

Alternatively, you may want to download a free and great tools called partition wizard. zap the whole harddisk and see if the empty spaces comes back.
