Our DishTV T1050 seems to have lost some disk space down the back of tv cabinet. We're always hovering about 1% despite deleting a pile of content and the amount seems to disappear unusually quickly when we free up space. (both HD and SD).

Are there any disk tools in a secret menu anywhere that can do a clean up (or is there the nuclear option of an HD reset if not).

Can't see any mention of this on the DishTV, and the box is out of warranty.

My one went through a stage of constantly reading 30% full even when not. Can't recall exactly what I did but I think it was a system reset or restore type of thing. Lost all programed shows and any recorded content but did give back full hard drive volume.

iirc this happened on ours because of a bunch of old series records that reserved space for future seasons

so find all of your booked recordings and clean these out and this should help ( i am of course assuming you have not used up your hdd space with actual recordings?)

Actually thinking about it overnight  I remember reformating the disk. That gave me back the missing space.
