Hello, I am new to ssd’s and I am having a problem with my new ssd 240 BG extreme for my early (4,1 model) 2008 macbookpro. The problem is that I first cloned my old HD to the ssd, and almost filled it out. I only had 15 GB of free space, then I erased some files that were about 50GB. On the finder it says that I have 65GB of free space, but if I open disk utility, it says that I only have 15Gb of free space. When I tried to install bootcamp, the bootcamp utility also only reported 15 GB of free space, I researched a little bit and found out about the trim enabler, I installed it and ran it enabliling the trim. I re-cloned my old hd to my ssd and the problem persists, I still can’t claim the space from the erased files. My firmware for the ssd is R201, I tried to flash the ssd with the new firmware but was not able to, it does not boot into the firmware upgrader, I tried with a cd and with a pen drive and nothing.
Any ideas on how to reclaim the free space??
