My 240GB SSD only displays 111GB space

Any particular reason why this could be happening? When I check in Disk Management it says its around 112GB but the actual SSD is 240GB large

    1. Screencap of your Disk Managemnt window
    2. Make/Model of your SSD, please.

    Name is SanDisk SSD Plus 240gb

    It's supposed to be Disk 0 in Disk Management.

    Well...Disk Managment generally don't lie.
    That shows to be a 120GB drive in Disk 0.

    Possibly try another application to read it.
    Speccy, for instance.

    It seems the OP has TWO (2) 120 GB drives installed accounting for a total of 240 GB of SSDs.

    But what makes it more of a muddle is that he/she may need to have BOTH of those drives installed in order to boot to the OS because the System Reserved partition - the ACTIVE partition of a MBR-partitioned drive - has been installed on Disk 1 which does NOT contain the C: partition residing on Disk 0 (the other 120 GB drive). I do note that Disk 0 (containing the C: partition) is apparently a GPT-partitioned drive but I believe (although not totally sure) that Disk 1 would probably need to be installed in the system since the Active SR partition is located on that disk. But again, I'm certainly not sure about that with this drives' configuration. It's probably moot anyway since both Disk 0 & Disk 1 are most likely "permanently" (more or less) installed I would think.

    I guess the (active) OS is Win 8/8.1 although I'm wondering whether Win 7 was (or is) involved here as well.

    How the OP arrived at this configuration is a story in itself I would think! It would be interesting to hear from the OP how this came about.
  5. I have a similar issue.

    I recently purchased a new SanDisk 1TB SSD and tried to format it on a laptop that currently runs a 2TB Seagate. The SanDisk will be used to clone a different laptop to quadruple the storage.

    However, it shows in my Disk Management AND in Speccy that I have plugged in a 120GB (111.67GB) drive only.

    Brand new box, sticker on SSD shows 1TB... how do I get the full 1TB available to me?
