I have completed my new build: i5-2500k, 8 GB RAM and a 64 GB SSD (Crucial M4).
I want to install Win 7 Pro 64-bit on a partition on the SSD. I know the Win 7 64 specs say you need at least 20 GB of disk space to install. I figure I will reduce the page file to 1 GB and eliminate the hibernation file. If I do that, how much space will i need on the SSD partition?
Unless you are an astute windows user, you will find yourself at 60GB within 6 months...... can reduce this by setting page file to a fixed size, moving user files to another drive, forcing e-mails elsewhere, off hibernation..... but you can easily have 10GB + of Windows Update uninstall files which you have ti turn on hidden files to see and know how to uninstall
