Not really required. All my 3 desktops run on 60GB SSDs - the oldest since 4 years.
I agree, but most PC users out there don't have the concept like we do when utilizing more than one hard drive and how to properly setup and save data from drive to drive. That being said is why I suggested a larger drive. It's the most logical option for the most common novice user who doesn't want to be bothered with what data should go where and to what location.

Hell, I can't get my wife to save pictures to the picture folder, documents to the documents folder and on and on.....there's stuff every where. She, like most users just click save and not paying attention to where it's being saved to.
I really hope you didn't just say I'm like most of the PC users out there that are idiots, did you?
I just don't know much about this / don't have experience with this kind of stuff and don't want to mess up my PC by deleting / disabling something that needs to be there.

Did you check with WinDirStat and the vssadmin command what the situation is. Can you post pictures of the results. I think you are OK, but it is always good to check.

Keep the temp files and other junk also cleaned out using Download CCleaner 3.26.1888 - FileHippo.com

If you've done everything else then you can uninstall some lesser-used programs to reinstall to the HDD.
