Windows 7: Free Space on SSD Drive routinely down and then up by over 10GB

Free Space on SSD Drive routinely down and then up by over 10GB

Hi there,

Every time when I first start my PC it only shows 2GB space left on my 111GB SSD drive.
However every time I restart it shows 14GB remaining on my SSD drive?
Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Which number is correct?
Remember I am not changing anything in between restarts?

Thanks

Baz

Please fill in your system specs; including what security programs you use and power supply.

Here is a tutorial by Brink that will help you.

Thanks for the response I have updated my system info as shown in the instructions but some of the information like the PSU size/brand was not available from the system info software is this normal?

Perhaps hibernate/pagefile acting up.

By the way, I guess SSD's are recommended to have 25% free space (garbage collection reasons) for optimal performance.

The way you get the power supply specs is looking on the sticker on the side of the power supply.

Windows 7 want at least 10% free space on its partition to work properly.

10GB of space dissapeared
I was going to make a virtual machine with VirtualBox, but at the last minute hesitated and removed the VM. But for some reason, the 10GB of space I gave it still hasn't been freed. I've uninstalled it and still nothing. Any help?
