  1. Wrong Hard Drive Total Space


    Hi Gents,



    I recently got a Dell laptop (500GB SSD) as it by default came with only C: drive (Single Drive) , I went ahead and tried to shrink the volume to 114 GB so that with rest of the unallocated I can create a second say D: drive. It first threw some error like "Operation failed" something like that I don't really remember and secondly the whole trimmed space is now not visible and is hidden.. See below screen-shot :-

    I am wondering if anyone have encountered same issue before or if they were able to resolve it without formatting the laptop.

    :)

    The recovery partition is only pertinent to this discussion if you, for example, resized it. Do you have any idea how it came to be 4.77Gb or around 10 times what it normally is, assuming it is indeed the Windows Recovery partition?

    If you delete the Windows Recovery partition you lose
    - the ability to reboot to Advanced Start Up options
    - automatic repair

    Just to check you have a valid Recovery partition try this:

    @topgundcp just had a random thought- would this be at all useful?
