Question HDD Showing full, but not full.

Jan 14, 2022
I recently decided to switch all my older laptop HDDs to SSDs. My primary has a 750gb Hdd that windows explorer shows has 228gb used, the rest free/empty. I was trying to "update" to a 500gb SSD, but the cloning software MiniPartition shows the drive as 100% full, so I can't migrate the software. I don't need that large of a disk, which is why the change. Everything but that program shows there is a ton of space and it is not full. Granted, I have minipartition free installed, but is should still show correct disk space even if it wont actualy clone to the new drive. Help?
