    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
