WIN 7 64bits PRO SSD Capacities mystery

Hi!

I installed Win7 64 bits Pro on my DESKTOP in a SSD of 240Gb the system occupies 104 Gb (no drivers, no software, just S.O.) I thought it coulbe a proble with the SSD, but I made the same operation with other SSD of 120 Gb and occupies 83 Gb. I Did the same with both SSD HD's on my LAPTOP and the OS just occupies 15 Gb on both.

Curiously, the same SSD's that are occupying the on laptop only 15 Gb, if I plug it via usb to the PC still has occupied the 15 Gb, but if I plug them on the PC motherboard has occupied 104 Gb and 83 Gb respectively .

RESUMEN:

Disk 1 240_SSD - Win7 64bits Pro - on Board - PC - 104 Gb occupied
Disk 2 120_SSD - Win7 64bits Pro - on Board - PC - 83 Gb occupied

Disk 1 240_SSD - Win7 64bits Pro - Laptop - 15 Gb occupied
Disk 2 120_SSD - Win7 64bits Pro - Laptop - 15 Gb occupied

Disk 1 240_SSD - Win7 64bits Pro - Via USB in PC - 15 Gb occupied
Disk 2 120_SSD - Win7 64bits Pro - Via USB in PC - 15 Gb occupied

Any Help? THANKS

What does S.O. mean??

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management.

Fill out your system specs so we can see what hardware is used.

How much RAM is installed?

How much space devoted to page file?

How much space devoted to System Restore?

Is this a clean install to the SSD and has the SSD ever had an operating system on it previously?
