Bought from where?
Have you done anything except just connect it?
Please show us a screencap of the Disk Management window.

first thing i would do is convert it to NTFS instead of exFAT. that might be causing windows to mess up the data size.

may not fix it but its where i would start
I just tried that.. same amount of space.. I wouldnt mind if it was just like 8 gbs.. but we are talking like 700gbs

where did you buy this ssd? that's about the right size for a 250 gb drive so from a sketchy source it could be f a fake.
I got it from Walmart (unfortunately) and it was discounted down to $50 bucks. Maybe some body did the old switch a roo returned the old one they had?

nothing wrong with buying from walmart. :)

folks buy from some real sketchy online chops where the fakes can happen. but i'd expect a new drive from walmart to be trustworthy.

crystaldiskinfo should help shed some light on things.
Well like I said it was on clearance.. not sure why. I am getting ready to try Crystal disk now I will screenshot. Thanks
