    Don`t forget your Page file, and System Restore, they both take up space. System Restore barely takes up any. And both can be configured by the user. ( Sorry, I`ve been watching too much Tron and couldn`t resist )

    I have 32GB of memory on both of my PC`s and haven`t used a Page File in a very long time, that`s 32GB of space you can get back, or at least you can lower the amount.

    A lot of people don`t realize this, and you certainly don`t need a 32GB Page file, unless a particular program you have installed needs it.

    Hi there
    Forget minitool -- it's not that reliable any more and depending on where you download it from can be full of ad / nag ware.

    IMO the best way of partitioning HDD's etc is to either use the bootable stand alone version of GPARTED or simply use Windows command line DISKPART.

    If you want to clone / image HDD's simply use Macrium Free -- loads of people on these forums use this program very successfully.

    Cheers

    I got mini tools 9.1 straight from the developers page when it was free & it was free to make the boot disk which does not work now on my modern board or I did not turn ufie off properly for it to work ?

    I just scramble wiped the drive then used windows disk manager to blank the drive afterwards then delete that partition to make it instal like a new disk.

    But I know what you mean about dodgy copies which myne is not I even have the V.1 boot disk when mini tools first came out also.

    My page file sets itself to 5gb on w10 pro & home never touched it really, not sure if it affects the reliability or not ?

    Ibeck had created a partition stopping him from copying the files across so was told to delete the partion & minitools would of done the rest.

    Ya I saw that, but I`m talking about his 700GB drive.

    Oh well, water under the bridge.
