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... :eek:





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 ? :eek:




some screens:

Run this program against the partition and it will show you where the space is being used.

Page file / Hibernation file are my guess, those files are considered system files and won't show up if you are just looking at hidden files I don't believe.

Wow!


A fast and flawless reply tomatthe!


You just solved my problem. Wonderfull app that WinDirStat :)


The hibernation file was about 6 GB and the pagefile.sys was about 8 GB.

Turned the hibernation off and set the virtual memory to 2 GB (since I have 8 GB of RAM)


I thank you my friend! :love:



PS: how can I award you a medal or select a best answer ? :)
