You might also check to see how much HDD space is allocated for system protection using the tutorial below, and adjust as needed.

Free space on C drive keeps decreasing?
My OS is windows 7 32bit. What I have done to prevent decreasing is: 1. disable system restore on all drives. 2. turn off hybernation 3. move pagefile to other drives. The problem is it is still decreasing, though in a lower rate. Any suggestions? Thanks.
