Hi all, I recently bought a new laptop with a 60gb ssd drive from toshiba. Under the Intel Rapid Storage Technology app, it shows the full 60gb, however under my computer it only shows just under 30gb. I have hidden files shown, and nothing is showing, so Im perplexed, seems to be missing 30gb, half the drive. Any help is appreciated!
More about60gb showing 30gb avail
U mean 30GB of total space or 30GB of free space?
How is the drive formatted ? If you have it formatted FAT32, it will only Format 30 Gb (approx), you'll need to resize the partition after formatting. If you're formatted using NTFS, then you should be able to resize the partition. If you're using Win 7 this should be straight forward from the management console, if not download Partition Magic or some other file system software.
Its NTFS, and I THINK that Lenovo installed the one touch restore partition on it, that might be where the other 30gb is, but its not showing on the my computer interface, not sure where to look to see for sure. It shows 30gb total space (SWTOR is currently downloading and will take up most of it), so maybe 10 remaining... big slow download.
What model is it and how much RAM has it?
its a Y570, 8gig ram, the ssd is a Toshiba, supposed to be 60gig
8gig ram=8GB page file, u can reduce it to, try 3GB. It will release 5GB of the space.
Whats the CPU?
Its not even that the space is used, its just not there. The drive shows as a 30gb drive not 60 as it should. its a i7 6340
OK, can u go to control panel >> Computer management >> Disk management
Can u post a screenshot of that drive? It looks like that.
Got the screenshot, not so sure how to post it, do I need to have it hosted somewhere first?
