    You are not giving us much information here, what are you using to do the restore? What 4% are you talking about? I have over 25 SSDs and I restore them all the time with Acronis True Image using the clone setting. Or if I am just restoring them to the same drive I use the regular setting. Are you talking about over provisioning the SSD to 4%? When you initilize the SSD after using Parted Magic to do a secure erase or in your case Samsung has their own toolbox to erase the drive, okay back to initilizing, you go to Disc Management and initilize the SSD making it a Simple volume withe MBR and set the size of the partition to 1024. Then just put the drive in the computer you want to use it in and install the OS, its really much easier than it sounds.

    Hey Alan

    I'm pretty sure all new SSDs come with Secure Erase built in, if I remember correctly, all you have to do is click on your start button lower left side of your screen, and type in secure erase and hit enter. Your system should restart and the erase process should begin. I'll have to see if I can find the article, but I'm 90% sure this is right

    its hard to say without knowing what software and items are loaded on the restore.. just to give you a example.. the restore size of my laptop is 8GB partitioned on the drive that 750GB drive... but the restore size is not broken down to a %, its more of how much space your system will require and there are diff way of doing it based on each manufacture or person.

    Hope that answers your questions a little.

    I use Parted Magic as per most of the SSD Forums I visit, like I can use Parted Magic on 99% of all the SSDs I have to do a secure erase, it runs off RAM and it has a very easy GUI, it only takes about 2 secs to restore the SSD to factory specs.

    I guess the big question is why you want to use system restore in the first place, are you having problems, or do you just want to set up system restore correctly ?
