(35 GB) Space Missing On SSD

I am using a laptop that has a SSD. My pc says it has a total of 95.3 GB of space. And it says that 8.3 GB is free. But when I select all the folders in my SSD, the computer says it is only using 60.3 GB of space. I am wondering what happened to the 35 GB of space. I'm not running any other program other than chrome at this point. So I don't think any programs are hogging the space. (Other than the OS and other minor programs, razer synapse, steam etc.)

Missing Space On New 120 GB SSD
I have an out of the box 120 gig Intel SSD which is saying I currently have 57.9 GB free of 96.6 GB. (I can account for what space I have used, this is not the problem). The problems is that while I understand the drive will have some space reduction meaning not all 120 GB is useable but 23.4 GB is a bit much, no??

Space Lost From SSD?
I'm having a little problem with my SSD. It's a Corsair Force 3 120GB. With the starting loss of 9GB it's a 111GB SSD. When I click computer from the start menu to view the available disk space it says 44GB. This dropped from 58GB to 44GB today without me installing/changing anything. Also, if I go into the SSD, and make sure view all hidden files and folders is on, if I add up all the space used it is 58GB, 111-58=53 so surely I should have 53GB left?

Trying To Reenable Pagefile To Free Up SSD Space
My biggest folders are seemingly Network Service and AppData. My OS is on an SSD with 60GB, I have another 1TB SATA and a second 60GB SSD as well. If I were to create these two folders in the second SSD, and make them point there, would this cause any issues? I am trying to re-enable my pagefile because it is currently set to 16MB and I can't create a full memory dump unless I set it back to the original 8GB. I only have 4GB free on my SSD, and it is not enough. The other SSD is empty and entirely available.

How Many Gigs Does Windows 7 Use HDD/SSD Space
I want to put an SSD in this computer for a boot drive. My plan was to install Windows and any important motherboard drivers on the SSD. What is the least amount of gigs I can get away with in an SSD for Windows 7 64 bit and mobo drivers. I was thinking either a 50 or 55 gig SSD. I think Windows 7 only uses 30 some gigs of memory and drivers should only use a couple gigs.

Windows User Data Take Up To Much Space On SSD
I have noticed that my SSD has been filling up quite fast lately. So I went to remove some programs thinking that was the issue, with no luck. *snap* So I did a disk cleaner run, removed 32gbs of info of it. Went to install ''Assassins Creed 3'' (Got the game off ''Gamerfanshop'') installed it my HDD. All was good, checked my SSD now its back down to 12gbs (82gbs total). Went to see what the issue was, it says that there is 41GBS of info on my Windows user. I open it to see where all the information was and I only find 12gbs in it...

Installed Windows 7 On An SSD, 5gb Space Left, Set Default To Another?
I installed windows 7 on a 60gb OCZ SSD for a faster boot, and it's been wonderful until I realized that I only had 5gb of space left on it, I have a 1tb hard drive and a 500gb one and i'd like to set the default of everything to install on either one of those, is there a way to do that? By this i mean libraries, temp files, download defaults, install defaults, stuff like that.'ve already changed a few libraries and my temp, but stuff still manages to find a way on the SSD, like I just purchased Photoshop CS6 and I told it to install onto the 500gb hard drive but then i realized i had less space on my C:// drive and then when I looked around I realized it dumped a bunch of crap.

Missing Space Found?
For a long time I was wondering why I had so little space on my hard drive when I had hardly used it. Finally, today I ran SpaceSniffer and found that there was some 58gb of unknown space that it couldn't identify. So then I used TreeSize to find where all that space was and it showed me a txt file called "Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile Setup_20120621_230001924-MSI_netfx_Core_x64.msi.txt" that was about 60gb in size! Does anyone know what this file is for and why it's so large? Can I just delete it? It's in my Windows temp folder and I don't think I would have found it unless I had used TreeSize as admin because I searched for large files before and never came up with anything

Partition Missing From Computer - Space Not Noted In Disk Management
I have a 1TB hard drive partitions into a C drive and D drive. The operating system is Windows 7 64 bit. The C drive is my every day stuff, and I use D to store media, music, video etc. Today I wanted to access the D drive and it was not there. The C drive is listed as usual. I went to Disk Management and the missing D drive was not there as well. I don't know if this explains things, but I ran a partition analysis program and it showed 500 gigs as unallocated. But that space is also not noted in disk management. Right now I am running partition recovery software to see if the files are somewhere, but it will take a few hours.

Windows 7 / Linux Dual Boot Missing Hard Drive Space?
About 6 months ago I set up a new machine dual boot using GParted with the following configuration:

/dev/sda1 ntfs (Windows 7 system reserved) 100 MB
/dev/sda2 ntfs (Windows7 C: drive) 99 GB (includes 4 GB of preloaded page file space)
/dev/sda3 ntfs (Shared drive - Windows7 E: Drive / Ubuntu sda3) 801 GB
/dev/sda4 extended partition 32 GB
/dev/sda5 ext4 (Linux Root) 30 GB
/dev/sda6 linux-swap 2 GB

I set it up so that I could access my E: drive from either the windows or ubuntu operating system. It has worked perfectly so far (about 6 months). But, here is the problem:For some reason as the share drive (my E: drive / sda3) grows Windows thinks that the windows system drive (sda2/c:drive) is also growing. So that now I have a low storage warning stating that there is only 8.76 GB of free space left on my 99 GB C: drive. When, in reality, there should be about 77 GB of free space. I've made hidden files/folders viewable and downloaded treesizefree so I know what should be on the drive. The Treesizefree output shows the expected 22 GB of space but also shows only 9 GB of free space. So, the missing space is nearly exactly the size of my shared drive (sda3/E:drive). So somehow, I think the windows OS is double counting my shared E: drive against my C: drive.

SSD Missing - BOOTMGR Is Gone?
I have a very big problem with my reinstall of Windows 7 Pro. I have now lost the bootmgr and am not able to "see" my SSD. Ouch! I searched the forum for my error: 0x800704f and couldn't find it nor could I get to see my SSD and am therefore not able to use the tutorial to "get it back." Well, I am at a loss at this point. I was originally trying a fresh install of Windows 7 pro. But, just prior, I got an error box that the Catalyst Control Center was not working properly(or something like that). But, when after all my efforts seemed to take me further down the rabbit hole. I concluded that I must post this thread!I built it myself and know just enough to make me dangerous!

Blue Screen Of Death Followed By Missing SSD Boot Drive
I recently purchased an Asus U36SD laptop and replaced the hard drive with a Samsung 830 SSD. I built recovery DVDs and installed Windows 7 on the SSD using these discs. Everything had been working fine for almost two weeks, but last night I got a blue screen of death after sleeping my computer for the weekend. I have seen the BSOD after booting from sleep before on another laptop so this wasn't too alarming to me especially after ~72 hrs of sleeping. However, this morning when I woke my laptop from sleep, I got the blue screen and my computer hung on restart until it entered the BIOS settings after some period of time. In the BIOS my SSD was missing. I turned off my computer and took out the battery for a minute, and retried and was able to boot into Windows. Within a minute I got another BSOD and my SSD disappeared again.

whether this is likely an SSD issue or some other hardware issue? This laptop is a PAIN to swap the SSD in and out because you have to unplug fragile keyboard and touchpad cables to access it, so I am weary of opening up the laptop if I don't have to, but I do suspect it could be an SSD issue.

Missing Partition And Unallocated Space (Can't Create New Partition)?
I'm using Compaq Presario CQ40-627TUMy Laptop SpecIntel Dual Core Processor T4400 (2.2GHz, 80Mhz FSB,1 MB L2 Cache)- 2048MB 800MHz DDR2 Memory- 320GB 7200rpm Hard Disk Drive- 14.1' TFT WXGA High-Definition widescreen LCD panel with brightviewtechnologynd i'm using windows 7 Ultimate on boot system partition C, dual boot with linux mint. which mean i got four partition. one for linux mint. one for its swap space. one for windows 7. one for my data storage(movies,drivers,mp3,picture and etc).last few days i try to resize my C partition (120gb) to make it smaller to gain some unallocated spaces and resize the D partition because my D (almost 100gb) (ntfs/primary/data storage) almost full. i use easeus partition master v5.01.

After done resizing and restart i can't see any D partition. so i was worried that my data will disappeared. i try to look for it but there is no Drive D even on the easeus or diskpart. the only drive appears was C Drive.i remove my Linux Mint and its swap (60gb) and thinking that i could get some more free space and do some cmd prompt windows 7 repair fixmbr thing to remove the grub. then i use partition recovery to transfer those missing data from partition D to C Drive. (appears as unformatted)i try to use partition wizard home to resize it back to 300gb. and it works. but i cant make a partition. it will disappear just like that.i also try to use diskpart,command prompt diskpard, and paragon. but also not working. the C drive was shrink but theres no unallocated space and no D drive (the new create partition). i try logical partition,primary,ntfs and fat but also not working. even the unallocated space also gone. i use almost 4 3rd party partitioning software but still got no luck with it.example:i divide 300gb into 2 partition which exist the C partition 150Gb but the other one gone. i wish theres other way than format. i also done many time. doing check disk, partition table doctor, searching for bad sector. but no errors with my hdd.

Installed SSD. Move "System Reserved" To SSD And Make SSD Boot?
I recently installed a SSD into my setup. I didn't have a Windows 7 64bit disk, so I booted into the HDD's OS and installed via .iso (I didn't want to burn it, as that always seems to fail.I wanted to get the System Restore partition installed on the SSD, so I tried booting to a Win 32bit disk and formatting the drive that way. Problem is, the System Restore is not recognized as such, and was visible so I ended up deleting it

that works fine, except I now have this:
Disk0: Hard drive
Disk1: SSD
Disk2: Irrelevant

1. Can I move the System Restore Partition to the SSD?

2. How can I make this boot off of the SSD? It currently boots off of the System restore on the HDD

3. The drive letters are screwed up, but whenever I try to change the SSD's drive letter it says "the parameter is incorrect", no matter which drive letter I choose.

Move Windows 7 64Bit From 128GB SSD To 256 GB SSD?
I have Acronis home plus. In order to move everything from my 128GB SSD would I just use Acronis to backup the 128GB and then use an Acronis startup disk to restore the backupimage to the bigger SSD?What about programs that rely on "hardware" id for licensing?Or would it be more feasible to just move only FSX to the bigger SSD.?Wouldn't there still be problems for programsaddons such as aircraft.?There is that pesky registry. If I remove FSX from my "C" drive I regain ~75GBs of space. Right now I have 28GBs remaining.

1) move all of my current "C" to the bigger SSD

2) move only FSX to the bigger SSD

3 just reinstall FSX on the bigger SSD and,re-license everything again.( not what I want to do )What i am trying to avoid is reinstalling FSX?

Clone Existing 128Gb SSD To New 256Gb SSD?
I've got a Lenovo T410s with a 128 gig SSD & I want to create an image to then put straight on a new 256 gig SSD.I've tried Macrium Reflect (paid for version), but when I then put the drive in, it doesn't boot. Macrium only lets you select 1 partition at a time, so I tried going through it selecting the system drive, then the O/S drive (C), then the D Drive (data) and then the Lenovo recovery partition, but still when I remove the 128 and boot from the the 256-no joy.

Moving Windows 7 Onto SSD, Want To Keep Existing XP Intact (also On SSD)
For stability / application continuity reasons, when I built my computer 1.5 years ago I went with XP Home on an SSD. It's great. Boot times in a blink, even 18 months later. I knew I would eventually want to learn and migrate to Windows 7. That has pretty much happened now. My WEI is pretty low, just because of the hard drive I installed it on--I have Windows 7 64 Ultimate installed on a partition of my 1TB data drive. The poor drive has like 4 partitions. That was probably ill-advised. Anyway, I want to:Partition the SSD, keeping the XP install intact Move my Windows 7 installation to the SSD on the new partition.

Transfer OS From Old 64gb Ssd To New 256gb SSD?
Can you recommend me the best way to transfer OS from old 64gb ssd to new 256gb ssd? My prev 64gb only had my os installed. So i presume that to upgrade to a new 256gb i just need to install an os and it will work the same way as the old 64 gb?

Anybody able to help me with this problem? I currently have the new 256gb installed with windows 7. However when i replace the old 64gb with the new 256 gb it states that the bootmgr is missing. Bios seems to detect the new 256 gb.

i would like to have my 256gb replace the 64 gb and operate the same way as my 64 gb without any changes.
