I have only just got my laptop up and running with 2 drives - an ssd for Windows and a separate normal hard drive for my date. But I notice there has been gigabytes going missing on the ssd. Would decreasing the space system restore consumes help with this?
If so, can you tell me how I would go about doing it? Also, any other tips for why my hard drive space is disappearing, even thought I have only installed a few tiny programs?
Control panel/system/advanced system settings/system protection tab/configure.
Move the slider you see to however many GB you want to allot to System Restore. 5 may be enough for 8 or 10 restore points.
You can also eliminate hibernation if you don't use it; that will save space equal to the amount of installed RAM.
To turn it off; go to an elevated command prompt and enter:
powercfg -h off
You could also move your page file to your regular hard drive.
You can also download Tree Size Free to see where space is being used on any hard drive from here:
