Drive Not Showing Full Capacity

Before you say the drive size will be slightly less than advertised, I know that. I have a 250GB Samsung 970EVO that should show a capacity of around 220-230GB but its showing a capacity of about 100-110GB.

Any ideas? I did use clonezilla to transfer my files onto this drive from my old one, could that be the problem? If it is are there any solutions? Thanks.

Are the files on your drive right now?

If they are then it's the files.

If they aren't then I've got no clue.

 

edit: nevermind

Right click start menu, and then go on Disk Mangement

On this window you should see your C:/ Drive and about 120gb of unallocated space. You need to extend the partition to include this unused space.

 

When you cloned with clonezilla it didn't extend the partition automatically.

Originally the unallocated space wasn't showing up and now it is but now I am getting an error that there's not enough space to extend the partition

disk management screenshot?

 

You may have to use a tool like gparted when its shutdown. Make a backup first.
