Default Missing Files - 10-06-2008, 11:44 AM

I redirected the My documents folder to my SDHC card to save space on the SSD,when I noticed this-

If I right click on the SSD and check the space of it,I get this information-

Total space- 14.3 GB
Used Space- 8.76 GB
Free Space- 5.54 GB

however,if I go into the SSD drive,select all,and check the file size,I get this total-

6.54 GB

So what happened to the other 2 gigs? I ran chkdsk,didnt find anything. also,my page file is off,and I view hidden files to make sure I didnt miss anything.

I have one of the good STEC drives,so I wouldnt think I'd get a problem with it...

I got 16gig SSD,16 gig SD card and 2 gigs of RAM

you mentioned that you have hidden files set to visible but didn't mention system files. there are two separate settings in the folder options... they're both visible?

Yeah, I noticed a gain of 2gb when I turned hibernation off. Nice.
