Hi have just joined this great forum and this is my first post
I recently got an Acer 1810TZ with win 7 installed. My desktop runs win 2000 and the OS is currently less than 2.5Gb and I consider that bloated as originally it was more like 1.4Gb. I like to image and can easily put that on a dvd even without compressing the file.
On my new Acer the OS is taking up between 12 - 14Gb depending if I have a restore configured. I have partitioned the HD into several partitions. I only keep the OS and absolutely min stuff on my C drive and I have one partition dedicated to the page file only, 3Gb, and have all my programs etc installed on another partition. The recycle bin has also been reduced to 256mb on the C drive
Is there a way to significantly reduce the OS (C drive) to say less than 4Gb ?
