  2. Looking for a new SSD

    Hello all,

    Im looking for a new SSD to replace a failing HDD in my desktop. Desktop interface is SATA III 6GB/s. I would like one around 500GB of storage. It will be used as the OS and Program/Games drive. I already have a 1TB HDD set up as a data drive.

    Ive been looking at Intels, Kingstons, and some Samsungs. I dont know much yet about SSDs.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for brand and/or model? I dont need anything with really extreme R/W speeds. A mid-line SSD would do me great.

    SSD storage keeps filling up on its own

    Hi Ash,

    There's a possibility that the files are just hidden. As an initial troubleshooting, we suggest following the steps below on how to display hidden files that's eating space of your SSD:

    • On the Search bar, type folder, and then select
      Show hidden files and folders from the search results.
    • Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives,
      and then select OK.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.

    What is Storage Sense? And how would it handle SSDs and/or Hard Drives?

    There is a new Windows 10 feature that was added in the Creator's Update. It's called
    Storage Sense. It is accessed by going to the Settings UWP app, under the System menu, and in the Storage list item.

    I couldn't find any more information about Storage Sense, other than it helps with the data stored on your primary and secondary drives, I think?

    So I have a few questions:

    • What is Storage Sense and what does it really do? Give an explanation as detailed as possible.
    • How would it work on SSDs?
    • How would it work on Hard Drives / Disc Platter Storage Medias?
    • Is it self-aware the user is on SSDs or on Hard Drives?

    Thanks.
