I will definitely do that.

Then 32GB would be plenty for the OS and all programs (no big games though) if done correctly. I have 6 systems with 6 SSDs and they all run around 25GB for the OS, All my programs and the pagefile of 2GBs.
Moving the pagefile is not a good idea. With 6GB of RAM, it will probably hardly be used. I always reduce the pagefile to 2GB. And I also delete the hiberfile completely.
ad3) You cannot move the restore points to another device or partition. That is only possible with the Windows server editions. You can, however, reduce the shadowstorage to nil (which is 300MB).
That is all very good to know. It seems I will only be able to use up to 26 GB total, so the fact that you are able to run the OS, all your programs and a 2 GB pagefile gives me a lot of hope.
Thank you for your help!
