Hello all, first post here so please bear with me.
I have been having a series of BSODs on my Win7 Pro system over the last couple of days with no clue as to what is causing them so after the last one I scheduled a disc check. Windows finished the disc check with a warning that it had found x number of bad clusters and then rebooted. Happened a little too quick for me to see the number unfortunately but after getting back into Windows and opening My Computer, my Pyro ssd shows only 66.6 gb free instead of the 73gb free before the disc check.
I assume the missing gigabytes are the bad clusters? Or what passes for bad clusters on an ssd?
Would pulling the drive and doing a secure erase using gparted on my Linux laptop followed by a reinstall of Win7 give me back my missing gigabytes or is this symptomatic of a deeper problem?
Appreciate any help.
