this problem is on my new Dell Mini laptop,it has an internal 16gig SSD and a 16 gig SD card
yesterday,fooling around,I redirected the My Documents folder to the SD card to save space on the SSD,and Im thinking its a possibility that Windows XP is still reading that data as if its on the SSD,but its not.
Basically,heres the info
Total drive space- 14.3 gigs
Total Used space displayed by windows- 7.30
Total used if I select all the files on the SSD- 5.09
Size of the My Documents on the SD card- 1.18
so it seems to me,that the files on the SSD and the My Documents folder on the SD card equal about the size of the SSD displayed in Windows. I disabled the page file (2 gigs of RAM),so could there be something else hidden that uses that much space? I didnt seem to notice a difference in free space after I did the redirect and XP moved the files...
So the question is,why is XP showing the space of the My documents folder if its not on the SSD?
