    Pick 1 machine, choose 1 ssd, delete or format your install partition, install 9841 and get back to us with the numbers.

    How much memory is involved, remember your page file takes up space.

    And please fill in the specs of that machine so we can help you

    Disk shows 33gb used

    Asus M4A88T-M-USB3 Motherboard
    eveg nvideo gt 420 graphic card
    AMD phemon ll x 2 560 CPU
    8gb memory

    May have some thing to with the way I'm formatting the drive.
    I reformat it with parted Magic.

    I did a new install with a new SSD out of the box no OS installed and it gave me 13gb used

    Best is if you analyse the content with WinDirStat. Then you know exactly what's on the disk (except for the shadowstorage).

    To determine the size if the used shadowstorage, you have to run this command:

    vssadmin list shadowstorage

    If you updated then there is a Windows.old that you need to delete.

    Windows.old only shows 6.5gb. After I remove it still 52GB used.

    Two different machines and ssd. I get the same 52GB used.

    Reinstall Windows 8.1 on one ssd. 22gb used. Which I think is what I should get.

    With 8.1 or 10 and 4 GB of memory I come up with 21 GB for each OS, right on the money.

    Actually, 10 Build 9841 is only 18 GB

    My page file for 8.1 Pro is only 1344 MB, strange, I should raise that to 4 GB.

    And it`s exactly the same with 10 But that just makes perfect sense.

    A clean install of W10 TP with the page file set at a maximum of 2 GBs takes up 19.2 on my SSD.
