Windows 10: After Windows 10 update Samsung SSD shows 2/two allocated spaces Solved

    After Windows 10 update Samsung SSD shows 2/two allocated spaces

    Weird situation.

    My Samsung 850 Pro SSD has always shown a 101MB Unallocated space.
    The other Samsung 850 Pro (1TB) has no such thing.

    As of the Fall Update (1511, 10586.3) I noticed another unallocated space has been added,400MB.

    Sure, this is peanuts compared to the available space, but is just striking and in fact I have no idea what they are being used for...

    Can anybody out there shed some light on this?

ID:	48105Windows 10 Threshold update/upgrade will create a recovery partition of 450 MB. That's what your magician is showing.

    However, your screenshot shows the spaces as unallocated, whereas it should be shown as allocated.

    Just upgraded to 10586. I have a Samsung 850 Evo 1TB SSD (drive C). Same thing, it added a 467MB it's not just the Pro. Can't find any info on this yet.

    Small thing though...
    Was forced to restore bld.10240 over an existing bld.10586
    (Re)updated again to 10586 and have now another 450mb space... :)

    You can eliminate these unallocated spaces and add them back to your C drive. Just backup your system before doing so. I have done it using Easeus. Possibly disk management, though I haven't used it for this purpose.
