Hard Drives

Guys,

I just made an upgrade from Vista to Win 7 ulitmate.

My SSD Drive is 57.5 GIGs which is my OS drive. There is an old hidden partition on it.

Previous install (Vista) used 28 GIG.

When I upgraded to 7 the total use is now 51 GIG.
I have hardly no software installed on that drives.

The funny part is when I boot up, the drive properties windows sometimes shows up 29 GIG used. That happens once every thrid boot.

I tried everyting to clean that drive but it seems that I missing one item somewhere.

SO my question is : How can I make sure that my drive is clean?

F.

Welcome!

Boot up your Windows DVD, and select Repair My Computer. Open a command prompt, and enter the following:

diskpart
list disk
select disk
[number of the disk you want to clean]
clean

That will delete all partitions. You can then install onto the unallocated space.
