What is the difference between the Unconscious mind and the Subconscious?

One is completely unaware and the other records information without you even noticing.

The subconscious is closer to the surface, more accessible to consciousness. The prefix sub- means under, so the contents of your subconscious mind are just under the surface. The unconscious is deeper, so that you are really unaware -- not conscious -- of its contents, unless you get hints from your dreams or your behavior that you realize was an acting out of your unconscious impulses.
Often I notice that people tend to use these two words interchangeably.

The subconscious is daily things that are in the back of your head.. example: when you walk, you dont need to say right leg move, left leg move.
Your unconscious mind is when you're totally unconscious and you're not really in a state of thinking
