View Full Version : Warp 64 V.2, Clean Vista x64 Install, No space available.
06-21-2009, 04:12 PM
I was definitely excited to load up Windows Vista x64 on this drive. I will upgrade to Windows 7 when it is released. I did a clean install of windows onto the drive, loaded the appropriate drivers for the motherboard, and went to install my first program. That is when I noticed the problem initially. It told me I had insufficient space to install the program. I thought this was weird since I hadn't installed anything else yet and it was a 64 gb drive. I thought the vista install would take like 6 gigs or something, but when I checked the drive stats it said I only had 700 mb of free space left of the entire drive. Has anyone else had this trouble? I went searching for all of this used space. I found 13 gigs being used in the AppData->Temp folder and a few gigs when I did disk cleanup. Now it says there is 39 gigs used still on the clean install. Any suggestions? Could the drive be bad somehow?

Find where the rest of the space went.
Do you still have the correct capacity showing for the drive?
You can Right-Click My Computer, go to Manage, then click Disk Management.
Perhaps there is another partition setup or system restore is using too much space. I recommend turning off System Restore, especially for SSDs.
These are the tweaks I recommend for ALL SSDs:
Disable indexing = uncheck indexing from drive properties + disable the indexing service
Turn off system restore
Turn off hibernation
Turn off the paging file (Some programs may require this, it is recommended to put a paging file on a HDD or use a ramdisk to put it into extra RAM)
Vista/7: Disable Scheduled Defragmentation
Type into cmd prompt:
fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 1
fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1
Go to Device Manager
Click the + By Disk Drives
Right-click on the SSD and go to Properties, then to the Policies tab
Make sure write-caching is on (power outage may cause loss of data..)
Vista/7: Check 2nd box for Advanced Performance
XP: place dskcache in C:, open cmd and type c:\dskcache +p c:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
Double-click the DisablePagingExecutive entry and change to 1 (If not already)
Repeat for LargeSystemCache, by changing to 1
Set SecondLevelDataCache to whatever your L2 cache for ur CPU is. EDIT IN DECIMAL MODE!!!
If you have 1MB - 1024, 2MB - 2048, 3MB - 3072, 4MB - 4096, 6MB - 6144
If you have L3 cache you can skip the above^ step, it will not make a noticeable difference
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters
right click Enableprefetcher...hit modify and change 3 to 0 and hit OK
EnableSuperfetch change to 0
Edit NtfsDisable8dot3nameCreation from 0 to 1 (Should be already done if you did the fsutil cmds)
Edit NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate from 0 to 1 (Should be already done if you did the fsutil cmds)
Add a new DWORD Value named DisablePerformanceCounters
Set the value of DisablePerformanceCounters to 1
Modify "Enable" which is a "REG_SZ".. modify this from Y to N
