SSD... lost disk space after resize. Tags: Hard Drives SSD Partition Free Space Storage Last response: September 2, 2012 6:42 PM in Storage Share Lycan_89 September 2, 2012 6:00:11 PM Hi there, I just bought a SSD for my system (Flash SSD Kingston V200 2.5, 128GB, SATA 3 ) I decided to resize my 25 GB C: partition with EaseUS Partition Manager to ~ 30 GB and something went wrong ... Free space before resize: 3.96 GB Free space after resize: 1.02 GB I don't understand those numbers... System restore is turned off. I've also selected ALL the files on C: partition (hidden ones included) and they sum to ~ 19 GB My question is .... what eats up the ~ 10 GB of free space ? some screens: http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/2383/12940961.jpg http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/3053/81851787.jpg Any help will be greatly appreciated...
