Module Usage

So I got my 32 gb optane working and it shows up just fine in Device Manager as Intel Optane+932GB HDD. However when I check the Module Usage in the Optane software it reports: system files 1.9 gb, user pinned files 0 gb, top accessed content 5.1 gb, and unused space 0.2 gb. That's only 7 gb being used. Why isn't the unused space showing something like 25 gb instead of the 0.2gb?

Nm I found the answer on the Intel support site...

"Why does the Module Usage graph and table in the Pinning section of the Intel® Optane™ memory application only show a portion of the overall capacity of my module?

To provide the best possible user experience, a portion of the module is specifically reserved for the most accessed content/system files and user pinned content. It uses the logic of the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) driver. This is the capacity shown in the "Module Usage" graph and table."
