When I installed Windows 7 (64 bit) in June/July (2010) it was using about 12 GB of the 20 GB partition I allocated to it.
It is now up to 17 GB (I'm gaining about 1 GB/month)!
At this rate my partition will be full early next year!
I have disabled Hiberantion (8 GB saved)
I have my Page File on a seperate partition (12 GB saved).
I don't install/save anything to my OS partition, if I get the choice
(no programs, docs, music, videos, etc.).
In XP, update info used to get stored on the OS partition and it was possible to "safely" delete it.
I have noticed that the Winsxs folder is currently 6.84 GB.
It seems to be full of driver
Are these files being used or are they backups?
Here is an image showing Glary Disk Analysis and Windows Explorer info.
Note that the figures don't seem to match!
Any suggestions as to how I can avoid disaster, without having to reorganise my entire HDD setup (which is a PITA)?
