SSD Format issues or what? Tags: SSD Drivers NAS / RAID BIOS Storage Last response: February 23, 2012 7:51 PM in Storage Share katman February 23, 2012 1:00:35 PM I have 2 pc's I'm working on. Both have 120gb SSD and Win7 64. 1: x58 board, BIOS RAID ( SSD is a non RAID disk ) Windows, Drivers, Updates = 24gb 2: z68 board, BIOS AHCI Windows, Drivers, Updates = 40gb I know the drivers are different but as I compare the difference is maybe 2gb. So I am 14gb off. What's the deal? Are there some hidden files to look for or is this a format or system problem? Thanks!

Try running windirstat to see where the data is, http://windirstat.info/ katman February 23, 2012 1:21:54 PM Thanks! Pagefile crazy large on the z68 ( that has more ram ) I set them to 2048-4096 to see and they are both using 2048. Now It's 22.8 gb vs. 27.5 Where do you look for restore info? I will look at windirstat also. Thanks again. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

The system restore is in the control panel , system and security , backup and restore. You can find options there. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
