Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit Install Size

I just installed Win 7 on an SSD drive and noticed it takes up an incredible 20 gig. Is there any way to cut that down?

  1. I installed it and it took 13gb. Did you possibly do an update? If so, your old OS is in a folder called windows.old, and you can delete it.
  2. No, clean install...says 20 gig here but I figure there has to be a ton of stuff that is safe to delete...

  3. Look at control panel/programs and features. Uninstall anything that you don't need.
    When satisfied, empty the recycle bin. You might also check how much space is reserved for the page file.
    I use Windows security essentials. It is free, takes little room, and is completely unobtrusive.
