SSD very low storage space?

Screenshot_2.png

I used partition wizard to migrate my OS from disk C: over to the SSD drive through USB - SATA III cable (i have no idea which is its main disk, but disk management got me to name it "A:". 

My HDD had about 200GB storage for C: and D:. 

 

When i replaced the HDD and boot up the laptop this is what i see. It's thisSSD, 250GB but i'm not seeing any 250GB here.

Re: SSD very low storage space?

A and F are likely to be recovery/boot partitions.  They wouldn't normally have drive letters.

 

The bulk of your 250GB looks to be split between C: and D:

You don't appear to be using D?  So you could use partition wizard to delete D and resize C to fill up the newly cleared free space if you're looking for C: to be a single 250GB drive?

Re: SSD very low storage space?

@laggycomputer  what @targetbsp  sounds about right. I would try deleting the D partition in disk management, then see if you can extend your C drive to take up that free space.

We also have an article that talks about problems like this, which might be helpful.
