    And if that Device Manager shot is from your laptop, the numbers 256 and the letter G after those numbers jump right out at me. Very odd indeed if that is your SSD. If the picture was pulled from the internet, then we will just ignore it.
    You don't realise how obedient I am, AddRAM - I was asked to snap Device Mgr and so I did. I couldn't read those numbers but have now managed to do so, you inspired me - and look what I found in specs on NotebookCheck re a different Acer notebook:

    (The green is because I used Ctrl+F to find it.)

    I wonder if the operating system is actually on that SSD and they've somehow blocked off half the drive? Or can part of a drive be corrupted?

    May I ask, where are you storing the Macrium Reflect image ?
    64GB USB stick, formatted NTFS.

    You can call me Brian, Patricia

    And May I say, Welcome to TenForums

    I don`t think any company would go out of their way to do that. Is that Device Manager snip from the laptop we are working on now ?
