    One other thing...

    If Windows is managing Virtual Memory it is Dynamic.
    If you set a Fixed Size it would be Fixed, i.e. not Dynamic.

    Restore Points can also alter your storage allotment.

    FWIW.

    I do have one Restore point but what's weird and wonderful about this situation is, the number of Gigs can drop like 10, 20 Gigs. Usually though, it's around the 10 to 12 mark. Also, before I turned on Restore points, I was enjoying the same thing with regards to the fluctuation of Gigs on the HD, well pardon me, I mean the SSD.
    Thanks for your help & your efforts which are truly appreciated! Anything you've got to offer, fire it this way!

    The last couple days, I've been showing 153 Gigs. This morning, it showed 151 Gigs both on Explorer and Wiztree.
    Upon reboot, both Explorer and Wiztree show 152 Gigs, so something is eating up a Gig or two for whatever reason. Any idea why that is?

    Check folder size differnces in screenshots (before and after) that you took of Wiztree's GUI and it might provide a clue.

    Super! All I took a picture of previously was the size of the Drive, e.g. 153 & today 152. That means, I'll have to start this over again. Totally stunned!

    Well if you look at directory sizes you'll probably see where the difference is. Then it's a question of looking at what is in the directory that grew in size the most.

    True enough but I've got to get a picture of these Folders this time. I've done the first take and I'll wait till it changes and let you know.

    So the thing is once you work out which directory grew in size the most you'd probably need to screenshot that directory again in Wiztree (before and after) to narrow down the suspect.

    Callender, you're a good man sir! I've appreciated your 'staying power' on this and ask that you stay around for a long while to come. If you lived next door, you'd possibly have to put a restraining order on me!
    I'll let you know what goes down. Thanks again!

    As of June 14th, I had 152.5 GB free
    Today I have 151.3 free.

    Tell me what I'm missing here other than my right mind, for some of the Folders seem to be smaller June 14th than they are today.

    RE: Program Files & Program Files (x86). Maybe you installed a program or a program updated.

    RE: Program Data. You'd now have to expand contents and repeat before and after screenshot process.

    RE: System Volume Information. It's likely that a system restore point was created.

    If you have Ccleaner installed see:

    In the tutorial linked above.

    RE: Downloads. Either you downloaded stuff or added files to the folder.

    There's no 30Gb+ difference.
