07 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 64bit Ultimate SP1, VMware Windows 7 64bit Ultimate SP1

don't Hibernate & pagefile Take up a nice bit of space to.

not sure, but when you said you done a clean.. did you do a advanced or normal?

Advanced Disk Cleanup
-Press the Windows + R keys, type cleanmgr /sageset:1
-Tick the options you desire. Click OK and close out the window.
-Press the Windows + R keys, type cleanmgr /sagerun:1
(note - there is a space between the r and the /)
This will then clean all the boxes you ticked.

If you have a desktop and don't hibernate, run this to remote the hibernate file.
powercfg -h off in a command line as admin.

Hibernate files will equal your RAM. So, if you have 2GB of RAM, you would have a 2GB file, and 4GB RAM would be a 4GB file, etc.

You can control system restore’s allotted space from control panel/system/system protection.

If you go to that location, you will see the first screen below, with the configuration button. If you poke the configuration button, you will see the second screen below.

You can move the slider in the second screen to control the space system restore can use. Note that mine is set to 5.4 gigs and I am currently using 4.76 of that—which covers about 7 restore points dating back a couple of weeks. How much you should allow is personal preference, subject to the overall size of your hard drive—small in your case.
