  1. 1TB NVMe SSD only has 875.3GB free of 930.97GB


    I'm setting up my first ever build and already am fixing a mistake I made. I installed windows with my HDD storage drive also connected so my system reserved partition ended up on that. I re-installed windows this morning with only my 1TB NVMe SSD boot drive connected.

    I do know an advertised 1TB drive is actually only ~930GB, but...

    When I go into This PC, it says I only have 875GB of 930GB available space, and I don't have anything on the pc yet except for windows. If I select all the files showing on my C: drive, it says its roughly 16GB so I'm not sure what is taking up ~50GB of space on my SSD.

    Is this normal? If not, how do I fix it? I would like to make sure I don't need to re-install windows before I go through the work of installing drivers and transferring files again...

    Missing Boot record (Error code: 0xc000000e) after cloning OS from an NVMe SSD to a SATA SSD

    Hi,

    I'm having a bit of trouble following what you have done so far, but might suggest a trick that might work..

    Your one picture says Disk 0 is the new cloned drive, but is showing a 256gb, not 1tb... Not a big deal, but I just wanted to make sure what I mention is correct..

    Will the machine boot from the 256gb SSD with the NVMe and new 1tb removed ?

    My impression is that you are now working with the new 1tb SSD that was a clone of the NVMe, and the NVMe that had the new 1tb SSD cloned back to it..

    This is my suggestion that has worked for me in the past, but not always.. The way windows lays out the partitions in UEFI machines can be tricky.. Sometimes just 1mb of free space before the first partition can break the deal..

    If your machine boots properly from the temp 256gb SSD, try this.. It will require that you make an image of the 256gb SSD and use bootable Macrium to restore part of it to the NVMe.. I chose the NVMe for this because it is a copy of a copy.. The best original
    you have is now the new 1tb SSD..

    Remove all other drives before attempting to boot with the NVMe after doing this..

    After imaging the 256gb SSD, try recovering it's first Recovery partition to the NVMe and see what happens.. If that does not work, try Recovering both the Recovery and EFI.. If that fails, try all three of the partitions prior to the Windows partition..

    If you still need to create the bootable media, don't even bother messing with the WinPE\Re version.. It is a real pain to create, and in my opinion, does not work as well as the Linux version.. The Linux version pretty much ignores any type of Windows fussiness,
    and just does the job you request..

    BTW.. Another method might be to wipe the NVMe and reinstall Windows... Then once installed and functioning, image the cloned 1tb SSD, then restore the windows partition to the NVMe overwriting what has just been installed..

  3. Clone present nvme pcie ssd to replacement nvme pcie ssd?

    I have a 500GB M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe SSD (boot drive) that I want to replace with a higher capacity M.2 card.

    Where do I put the new SSD during the NVMe to NVMe cloning process? My mobo only has one M.2 slot for NVMe SSD's so do I want to use an external adapter for one of the M.2 cards? If so, do you have a recommendation?

    If you have solved this issue for your desktop or laptop I would like your advice on if and what extra hardware you needed during the cloning.

    please remember that I am dealing with PCIe NVMe drives ONLY. NO Sata is involved except possibly for a connecting cable from the desktop to an adapter. I am experienced with cloning SATA III drives but cloning NVMe is a little
    new to me.

    Computer: Dell XPS 8920, 32GB ram.

    Present SSD: KXG50ZNV512G NVMe Toshiba 512GB

    New SSD: CT13049074 Crucial P1 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD 1TB (or 2TB if available soon) or similar storage device.

    Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, version 1809.

    NVME SSD

    Tried this, and windows still didn't see the nvme ssd. It was a brand new nvme ssd right out of the box. Nothing works.
