    Believe what you will. There is no information given by the SSD manufacturers as to how much space is reserved. You stated that the difference between the drive manufacturers stated size and what the computer sees, is the reserved space. It is not. Whether the drive is an SSD or a conventional hard drive, the manufacturers have always stated the size in decimal and the system shows the size in binary.

    Hi, I queried shrink volume - and though I have 102GB free space - it is showing me only 579MB to create OP unallocated space. Screen shot below. KClick image for larger version.

    It looks like your disk is pretty full then, you might want to think about getting a larger one, or at the very least moving some of your dat files, that are not needed every day to an external USB hard drive.

    How full does it show in File Explorer?

    Here is what I see - I'm baffled as to why I can't set aside, for example, 10GB when I show over 100GB available.

    Try running trim, by manually going to optimize drives and run optimize, then check shrink again.
    Disregard if it has been done lately.

    I really have no idea, why you have over 100GB space left, but in shrink, it shows only a few hundred MB

    Hi,

    Assuming you're trying to shrink your system partition it's quite possible it contains some unmovable system files on it.
    I'd try shrink it with Mini Tools' partition Wizard.

    Personally I do not care about OP on my ssd's.

    Cheers,

    That's a thought, as on SSD's partitons are actually virtual, as opposed to real on a spinner.
    windows might think it has data scattered around, because the SSD controller lies to the OS as to where the bit's and bytes are(that's its job... to lie).

    He could create a system image, then re-image back, then Windows would think all the bits are lined up like in rank & file, little soldiers.

    Hi,

    Yes, an image followed by a restore should fix it too.
