SSD Reporting Incorrect Free Space

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have a 60gb SSD, I just loaded Windows 7 on it, but now it is showing 17gb free space available when I right-click and view the properties of the drive.

However, if I select all the folders in the drive and view properties, it shows that 13gb is used up, meaning I should have a lot more than 17gb free space.

Any suggestions how to correct this?

Thanks.

16GB hibernation file, plus, if Windows does it's usual trick, an 8GB+ pagefile. frown.gif

My problem is exactly as shown in the screenshot by ACHILEE5. I'll try turning hibernation off later when I'm home.
