Files on SSD take up too much space, until restart.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, i have a problem with my SSD. When I download or move files to this SSD, a samsung ssd 849 evo 120 GB, they seem to take up a lot more space. E.g. i tried moving the folder with The Wither 3, which is about 50 gig, on my SSD that has 60+ gig of free space, but the space fills up while there are 20 more gigs of the game! The pace is restored after restart, at least most of it. Can someone help me resolve this issue?

How much ram do you have 

16 gigs of ram, no need for paging files.

Edit: probably was that, the system management for paging files is crap... I thought i set it to manual.

Probably just temp files. Have you run CCleaner to clean up files? (you should also run the registry cleaner)

 

You can try to transfer it in parts by selecting just a few subfolders at a time to move.

 

Having said that, I wouldn't recommend you put the game on the SSD if you'd only have 10GB left afterwards. That leaves very little space for temp files, windows/game/program updates, page files, etc and could cause slowdowns if it runs out. Honestly, it probably won't make much of a difference vs loading it from a HDD, personally I'd just keep it on that.

Having issues with a Corsair AIO? Possible fix here:

Spoiler

Are you getting weird fan behavior, speed fluctuations, and/or other issues with Link?

Are you running AIDA64, HWinfo, CAM, or HWmonitor? (ASUS suite & other monitoring software often have the same issue.)

Corsair Link has problems with some monitoring software so you may have to change some settings to get them to work smoothly.

-For AIDA64: First make sure you have the newest update installed, then, go to Preferences>Stability and make sure the "Corsair Link sensor support" box is checked and make sure the "Asetek LC sensor support" box is UNchecked.

-For HWinfo: manually disable all monitoring of the AIO sensors/components.

-For others: Disable any monitoring of Corsair AIO sensors.

That should fix the fan issue for some Corsair AIOs (H80i GT/v2, H110i GTX/H115i, H100i GTX and others made by Asetek). The problem is bad coding in Link that fights for AIO control with other programs. You can test if this worked by setting the fan speed in Link to 100%, if it doesn't fluctuate you are set and can change the curve to whatever. If that doesn't work or you're still having other issues then you probably still have a monitoring software interfering with the AIO/Link communications, find what it is and disable it.

Yeah. My Battlefront install and all my games run off of a 7200rpm WD Blue, and it takes a bit to load, but not so much you get really annoyed by it.

Also if you keep a solid state drive too full it'll increase write amplification, drastically cutting down the life of the SSD. So make sure you leave a good 10-15% free space at least, unless your drive is already overprovisioned.
