Windows 7: SSD full after fresh install?

SSD full after fresh install?

I have a fresh install of 7 pro 64b. SSD is 40 gigs. No windows.old folder.

Properties of the windows folder shows 10 gigs, everything else in c:/ is around 200mb or less.

Is this just reading it wrong?
The pagefile isn't setup any differently then what's standardly installed.

No hidden folders, etc.


FIXED: CMD > POWERCFG -H OFF

15D,

Welcome to SevenForums.

Run CleanMgr.exe

Be sure to click on the Clean up system files button and to choose in the subsequently to delete all except for the last system restore point.

| type %temp% | Enter | Ctrl + A to select all | Ctrl + D to delete the selections

Now all of this is going to give you a little more working room.

Next you want to move your profile folders to a drive with more space on it.

Did you start the install disc from Windows, and do a upgrade that way or ..
Boot from the Install DVD?

I have a 40GB SSD as well, and never seen mine that full from a clean install...



At any count following Karlsnooks advice, you may also want to disable the hiberfile to allow for more space as well.


Run command prompt as admin and this command:
powercfg -h off

Also you can delete the sample Music/Pictures/Video etc in the Public folders if you so choose.

hey, thanks for the help. temp had maybe 5-10 mb in it. Definitely not the problem.


This was a clean install from a formatted ssd. There's no way it should be taking up the entire 40 gigs. I installed a few hours ago.

I had it installed for the past few weeks with no problems, but I had to format and now this?

I had run the cleaner as the first thing, and it cleaned maybe a few mb.

I've set it to show hidden folders, and the properties through this last image are correct for the drive. But it shows the drive full when I'm in 'computer'

you selected compression which is no-no for your system drive.

Time for a fresh clean install. There are several tutorials here on making a clean install. I very strongly recommend reading the appropriate tutorial and following the procedure there.

I'm an a+ tech and I used to work for geeksquad, I'm familiar with how to install a fresh install.


Just never came across this before.
I just formatted / deleted the partition and create a new one again to see if there was any difference.
The install just finished and it's showing up with the entire drive FULL again.


Why is it showing the correct amount in properties, but in computer showing it as full?
