Windows 7: vista upgrade to se7en;why over 100GB disk space?

vista upgrade to se7en;why over 100GB disk space?

I install windows se7en by upgrading from vista; using se7en upgrade.
It takes for one hour and a half, then completed.
I go to check disk space on C, then it appears 117 GB used
therefore I find out system requirement of windows seven. It is just 20 GB for x64
So I think the remaining must be some updated files or required space for Se7en themes.

But what exactly are they from and what is it?
and how can I hand it

please give me some information.
thank you very much

If you did a clean install. Some of the extra GB is from windows.old. Your old OS and all your files etc.

If you did an upgrade, some of that is your own programs, etc.

If you format the drive with GParted, there is no 100MB partition.

If you'd like a leaner install which is the cleanest possible, backup your files and boot from the Win7 DVD, select Custom install and use Advanced drive tools to delete all, repartition as you wish and then format the Win7 partition first before install.
