You fixed it, I don`t see anymore un allocated space in your shots.

Why are you trying to put EASEUS on a flash drive, just install it on windows and run the program, and post the shot.

You`re fine, call it a day

I have the 3 MB un allocated on my ssd and the 2 MB on my hard drives too Jack, I could care less. You can`t see it unless you go digging for it.

Like SIW said, it`s from alignment

Once again, mine using EaseUS Partition Master

Just to get an understanding on alignment. If the size of the partition is not an integer multiple of either the block or sector size then this unallocated space pops up?

Thanks, they pretty much confirmed my suspicion, but instead of 512 I should look for multiples of 4096. I simply have never noticed this before. Maybe in this particular instance it was so glaring I could not leave it alone.

The offset has to be dividable by 4, that`s all that matters.

If it isn`t the alignment is not right.
