Thanks for the reply. I have, and just completed another one. I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader (Adobe's website said it was ~38.4MB but my PC used 400MB to install it - the 'uninstall program' window in the control panel says its only using 211MB) The disk cleanup only restored 100MB - which I guess is lucky since other programs that I have uninstalled the storage space just disappears. I'm honestly thinking I'm just going to RMA this and use my HDD as my primary - I realize SSDs are faster but I guess HDDs are more reliable - I might just pick up another HDD and setup a RAID config since my system is already pretty fast. Hopefully we can figure this problem out though
Thanks again for the quick reply.
