    disk space reduced after media creation tool

    Hi Sarah,

    One of the possible reasons why your disk space was reduced is due to an unallocated disk space on your partitions. For us to isolate your concern, we suggest that you check your device's partition. To do this, follow the steps provided below:

    • Type Computer Management on Ask me anything and press
      Enter.
    • Select Storage and click on Disk Management.
    • Send us a screenshot.
    We look forward to your response.

    Hard disk spaced reduced after partitioning !!

    hello all ,
    i recently bought a 1T 64MB WD Green Cavier hard disk drive .
    the problem is when i went for partitioning only 950G out of 1024G was useable! (no problem cuz i myself found out that 10% percent of all hdds space are not useable . )
    but the catch is ,when i partitioned the drive with 250,200,200, 310 as partitions size
    they again got reduced to 245,196,196,293 !(when i logged on to me windows) so why ? i mean the hard disk is reduced from 1 terabyte to 950 gig , so then what is the other 20Gigabyte for ?
    with the current situation i can only use 930 gigabyte of my 1024 gigabyte hard drive ! and this means 94 gigabyte of space lost!! and thats crazy!*Bang Head :banghead:
    how can i fix this problem ?
    by the way i am using windows xp sp3
    thank you in advance

    Free hard disk space reduce after system restore

    I have problem getting update for windows. So decided to do a system restore. After doing a system restore i am able to update my windows but notice the free hard disk space had reduce.
    Before doing the system restore my free space in my C drive is about 33.6GB ( if i am not mistaken, quite sure anyway ) but after the system restore is 26.6GB. Despite having less program installed.
    Any idea where to those free space in my C drive went? And any idea what went wrong?
