My 240gb 530 ssd acts like a 60gb drive. Please help?!?

New Contributor

I recently upgraded my ssd from 60gb to a 530 series 240gb. After using Data Migration Software to clone my old drive, the new one is showing that it only has 60gb worth of space. Please what did i do wrong and what can I do to fix it?

This happened because the old drive has a partition of 60GB and the data was migrated with the partition as it is.

The good news is that you can simply extend your partition occupying the remaining unallocated space. Please go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management, and then right click the partition (usually named as C:) and select Extend Volume. Increase the partition size as needed.

It is recommended to back up your data before proceeding in case you modified or added new files to the SSD after migration.
