Windows 7: Windows 7 hard disk.

Windows 7 hard disk.

I installed Windows 7 on a computer for my friend. We used a partition on 20 gigs. I installed 64 bit for him, and promised him that there would be 15 gigs left of space. When I was done, there were only 5 gigs left. How do I hide the disk, or make it look like there is more space than there really is? Thanks.

Why hide the disk or show more spece than reallly is??? You wanna fool a friend?

Why not just increase the size of partition?
