  1. Samsung mSATA SSD only show 113/250 GB!?


    As the thread title states, my SSD is mysteriously missing a ton of space..

    It is my C: drive with Windows 10 Pro installed on it.

    I put the SSD in, while using Windows7, anyway, I got Win 10 (clean install from scratch), Cloned from HDD to SSD, moved around the boot order (In BIOS the drive is called a Samsung EVO 250)

    Only 113 of 250 showing. Where is all my space hiding!?

    Figuring the paging and hibernation bits can't possibly account for 137Gb...?

    Thanks kindly.


    PS - I am terrible with technical computer stuff so please forgive my ignorance, it's just not my specialty. *Sad

    INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE after Windows 10 Anniversary Update on SSD with RAID

    Hello!

    I run a problem with INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE after my notebook got the Windows 10 Anniversary Update last Tuesday (13 Sep 2016).

    System:

    Notebook Dell Latitude E7440

    Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA 250 GB

    No HDD or other extra devices are on board

    When I got the notebook it had a 128 GB SSD disk on board with Windows 8.1.

    Then (March 2016) I upgraded it to Windows 10, and then migrated to a bigger 256 GB SSD.

    Everything worked fine till last Tue (13 Sept 2016) when my system got updated with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and the next day did not want to boot anymore.

    So far I made the following findings:

    It's surely neither the BIOS nor the hardware issue here since:

    A) the BIOS settings were not altered since it was bought:

    - Boot Sequence: Windows Boot Manager, UEFI: Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA 250 GB

    - mSATA Operation: RAID on (although no RAID is actually mounted on the disk)

    - Secure Boot enabled

    B) The unbootable 256 GB SSD (Anniversay Updated) does not want to boot neither in STANDARD nor in SAFE MODE

    while

    C) the old 128 GB SSD boots its (non-Anniversary Upgraded) Windows 10 without any problem

    Other observations:

    1) The first attempt to repair the unbootable 256 GB SSD with the Windows USB Recovery Environment (Startup Repair) made it visible and accessible again as the file system (but still unbootable).

    2) It is not possible to make any further REPAIR or to get back to the PREVIOUS BUILDS on that SDD with the Windows USB Recovery Environment.

    3) The unbootable 256 GB SSD is visible and accessible via USB Windows Recovery Environment command prompt

    and in the non-Anniversary Updated Windows 10 (when booted from the old 128 GB SSD) - (I can install both SSDs as the laptop has 2 x mSATA bays).

    4) Any of the Googled solutions for startup issues to be solved with BOOTREC.EXE (with any switch) - while at command prompt from the USB Windows Recovery Environment did not work.

    5) Neither CHDSK nor SFC scans brought any errors.

    I could normally backup the data from the unbootable 256 GB SSD (I surely did) and re-install the complete system but due to some applications (and their data) that are already installed there - I cannot afford it and need to fight to somehow get this particular
    system back working.

    I have heard that I'm not alone with this problem (unbootable SSDs after Windows 10 Anniversary Update) and that Microsoft is working on some update/patch/tool to get the SSD disks visible/bootable again.

    Can anybody help?

    Brgds,

    Dell XPS 8500 upgrade from Win 8.1 Pro to Win 10 Pro

    Hi

    I removed the 32GB mSATA that was used as a cache.

    I installed the Samsung SSD in the mSATA slot as my C: drive and made the 3TB disk my D: drive.

    The 32GB mSATA is sat in an external USB to mSATA drive bay.

    Regards

    What size was the HDD you cloned from?

  5. Odd. Ok so it says 78 free of 113 in the "This PC" but in the Storage section it says 94 of 173Gb which STILL isn't the 250 but makes things even weirder.

    Really frustrated and wishing I could go back to 7 but I'm way out of warranty and due to circumstances cannot so I'm stuck...

  6. It is 700Gb I think... In any case 649Gb free after formatting.

    It has nothing to do with Windows 10. You apparently copied the Windows 10 to the SSD, not cloning (can't clone from large capacity disk to small capacity disk).

    Open Disk Management, right click on C drive->Extend Volume.

    This is an image of my 250GB HDD with Win10 on it:

    I have read of others who have had problems when cloning from an HDD to a smaller-capacity SSD or HDD and most ended up doing a clean install on the SSD then using the larger HDD as secondary storage.

  10. Pressed the CLONE button in Easeus as instructed in another tutorial to clone. If that's not the correct term, my bad, as stated above my expertise is clearly not computers...

    And where is Disk Management? I am lost on 10, nothing is where it used to be...

  11. Clean install it is. I will get to try and sort this move user files stuff that way too...

    Thanks Berton

  12. Clean install complete. Zero change... Also, if it makes a difference, C: Properties states drives total size to be 113Gb as well....*Mad

    I'm afraid to start setting things up programs etc in case I have to start over again...

    Also checked drivers through dell and their detection system states everything is right as rain, except for a bios update which apparently causes issues with sata III (which I don't even know if it's running properly but supposedly you need A11 to get it working right, I'm on A14, update is to A16....)

    Well, it's there and I just need to Access it! I found Mini Tool Partition Wizard, ran it, and look what came up:

    Not sure how to get that 59 empty gb back or what is in the first one but I can see it is there so that's a relief for now.

    EDIT:

    Looks like this is what is in each section:

    So would restoring a image from a large HHD have the same problem with a smaller SSD?

    I don't know what program you used to clone the disk but your partitions layout is a mess.
    IMPORTANT: It is advisable that you create a backup image of your SSD drive using: Macrium Reflect Free just in case things go wrong before working on the partitions.

    Download Bootable Partition Manger | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition , use Rufus - Create bootable USB then boot your PC from it. You'll get a screen similar to what you had. See screen shot and follow each step as indicated by the numbers.
    NOTE: The arrow just indicates the Boot Manager is from this partition. (The first partition on SSD)

    Once in Mini Tool.

    • Right click on 1 then select "Inactive"
    • Right click on 2, select Move/Resize, a Windows pops up, move the mouse to the end until you see 2 vertical bars and drag to the left to resize to 500MB from 59.4 GB(Note: Mega, not Giga)
    • Right Click on 3 and select Delete 59.7GB.
    • Right click on 4 and select Move/Resize, a Windows pops up, Drag it to the left until it is next to 500MB partition, Move the mouse to the end until you see 2 vertical bars and drag to the end to extend the partition.
    • click on "Apply" button on the top left to commit the changes and follow the screen until done.
    • Reboot your PC.
    • Open Mini Tool, your SSD should have a 500MB System Reserved partition and C drive.
