I guess its a problem with SSD's although I have done this before without a problem?

Thanks for all helpfull comments
I'd say Paragon sorted out the problem for you by recognizing the unallocated space which Disk Management didn't. Partition Wizard would have most likely solved your problem.
Does this problem look familiar
500GB Drive Only Shows 258GB

I post this mainly for the sake of others in the same situation.

Instead of getting an attitude with someone who's trying to help you...you should be thankful for the time and effort.

The reason people have been asking is that there are a lot of counterfeit flash memory products on the market that are a much lower capacity than advertised.
