    I just installed official windows 11, my ssd spcae has 27gb less space after install, but when I select everything on my drive C and check properties, it shows only 12.8gb size on disk. I'm wondering where the rest of the space is as properties shows 27gb used.

    The disk space discrepency could be dow to a memory swap file that the OS installer has created.

    If you install Windows and opt to keep existing programs and files, you'll find that the install creates a backup of the old windows installation in a directory named windows.old. You can delete this using 'Disk Cleanup' and selecting the system files option.

    Did windows 11 create any additional partitions on your SSD?

    You can try to clean up hidden installer data. Windows likes to saves all kind of shit on the HDD. As i updated for example from Win10 Home to Win10pro, it simply locked away 30GB in a hidden folder.

    There were some cleaning tools included in win10 to removed with admin rights. Was a pain to do ...
    This maybe works for win11 too.

    Good Luck!
    I am not installing win11 in the near future ... I see no benefit right now. And i let others test ...

    I installed it but as a VM through Parallels Desktop. It's on a VM because Intel based macs doesn't support TPM chip so I don't really care what will happen with it and i'm using it as a test VM only. My first impression is that till now everything works (including updates)

    27GB is pretty normal for a Windows 10/11 install. You may have some hidden stuff but besides that should be fine.
