While checking Restore System files and setting its stated " System Restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on this system A volume shadow copy 0x80043202"
This could be the cause that what ever updates they are staying in the restore part of the SSD since I can not restore the system any longer please help to rectify this error wonder how serious it is

To fix System Restore:

  1. Right-click on Computer, then click Properties.
  2. Click System Protection.
  3. Click on your SSD, then the Configure button.
  4. Click Delete button to delete all Restore Points.
  5. Click Turn off system protection, then click Apply.
  6. Click one of the Restore options, set Max Usage to 1-2 GB, then click OK.

Hope that helps.

Hope that helps,
John

Press blue ThinkVantage button to open Toolbox, then click on Drive Space Manager.

You can then click on the graphic to explore it.

 

To find out which apps are eating up space, Click Start, enter "%USERPROFILE%\AppData", and press [Enter] to open a Windows Explorer window, then right click on folders to open Properties to see how much space folders are using. Most apps will put their data in the Roaming tree.

 

UPDATE: A better address for the last paragraph above is "%APPDATA%", which opens the Roaming folder. After exploring Roaming, go up a level to also check Local and LocalLow.

Hope that helps,
John

Sounds like your partition is misaligned or TRIM is not working. See Engineering Windows 7.

Hope that helps,

Sorry to hear that. See my suggestions here. LTT Drive Space Manager is a pretty good tool.

Hope that helps,
