Windows 7: System Partition with 5GB free space

System Partition with 5GB free space

I partitioned my hard drive into a C drive with 60GB and a U ( for Userdata ) with 140GB of space thinking 60GB was more than enough for Windows 7 and any ancillary requirements ( email, user settings, etal. ). The U drive contains my pictures, music and so on.

I now have only 5GB of storage free on my C ( System ) drive and I am wondering if this will cause me problems with performance ( page files for example ).

I do not have any issues with performance today but I am wondering what ( if any ) problems I might encounter to decide whether or not to enlarge this partition or not.

Any and all comments welcome...

If you want to reduce your User data partition and add it back to the C partition, post up a screenshot of your full Disk management drive map with listings (maximize window first) using Snipping Tool in Start Menu, and we will give you the steps using free Partition Wizard bootable CD.

Thanks for this -- had forgotten about deletion of system restore files --- also turned off hibernation --- total reclamation = 7GB+
