    I was looking at how much storage I have left on my SSD and I noticed it says 8GB of video. I can't for the life of me find where these videos are. I only have a couple one minute home video clips that equal 5.5MB of space. Has anybody had this problem?

    No, what is that? Also when i go into disk utility everything is greyed out. Is that normal with SSD's? I don't think my HDD was like that.

    EDIT: Maybe it's grayed out because I am booted from the drive.

    Well the options in disk utility were grayed out because you can't format a drive that you are booted from. The options came back when I booted from my thumb drive. I am reformatting the new drive and restoring everything because I think somehow some data was duplicated during the last restore.

    I download the program but it showed no movies on my drive. In only have 50GB of data on my computer, restores don't take very long.
