    Space available on a triple SSD (40GB each) in RAID 0 keeps changing

    First off pnamajck, let me assure you that my computing experience with ssd's has been nothing short of incredible. My computer is unbelievably fast. Windows loads in 30 sec. My DESKTOP system is custom built by POLYWELL. Everything is original, nothing added. System is 6 years old & there...

    Space available on a triple SSD (40GB each) in RAID 0 keeps changing

    I have already done that. The question is not aimed at getting more space, it is aimed at getting insight into the cause of the varying available space.

    Space available on a triple SSD (40GB each) in RAID 0 keeps changing

    A couple of weeks ago I got a message that I had virtually no space on my C drive (3 x 40GB SSD in RAID 0). This was a big surprise. I am running Windows 7 PRO. I removed some restore points to get back to 7 GB of free space. I then did a disk cleanup to get to 11 GB. Since then, the free...

    Disk Space after uninstalling programs

    Prior to uninstalling several programs, the unused space on my C DRIVE (3 25 GB SSDs in RAID O), was 12.8 GB. After uninstalling around 1.5 GB, the unused space was REDUCED to 11.9 GB. How does this make sense?

    screen saver and window title questions

    1. screen saver: why does the Windows "background" image remain on screen when the screen saver is running? This has never been the case with previous Windows! 2. Why is there no "title" (in title bar) on windows such as Windows Explorer? Thanks for any insight.

    Windows Explorer toolbar?

    I cannot find the Windows Explorer conventional toolbar. I cannot find, for example, any way to get the DELETE button onto the existing "toolbar". Under ORGANIZE, there is DELETE showing a red X symbol for DELETE. How do I get that & other actions on a toolbar? Thanks.

    working with .vhd files

    All my problems were related to Administrator Permissions + Hidden files. I am hating Windows 7 after XP. Seems like some of the Administrator issues are still there after Vista fiasco.

    working with .vhd files

    I converted an Acronis True Image .tib image file from an old computer into a .vhd file. I then attached the .vhd file in Windows 7 on a new computer. I can use the files from the attached .vhd file which are now on a virtual drive. Is there any way to get selected files from the virtual...

    Recovering .vhd files

    I converted an Acronis True Image .tib file to a .vhd file. It is now on my Windows 7 hard drive. When I go to Windows 7 Backup & Restore, the .vhd file cannot be found. Supposedly, I can mount this .vhd file. How do I do it. Thanks.
