Windows 7: Diabolical hard disk

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Diabolical hard disk

I was just looking at my HD to clean up some free space, but look at that number I got:

Should I do something?

Being a desktop, you don't need the hiberfil.
Knock that off by typing the following in an "elevated" command prompt (right click the cp icon, and select run as administrator)

powercfg.exe -h off

You can knock the pagefile down too. Windows 7 OS generally matches the ram installed.
Do that by following this path:
Start orb - Control Panel - System & Security - System - (in upper left section) Advanced System Settings - Performance: (click) Settings - Advanced tab - Virtual Memory: (click) Change.

Highlight C: (if it's not); click the Custom size radio button.
Set Initial size (mb): to 512
Set Maximum size (mb): to 1024


I would also download CCleaner and run that regularly to get rid of left over Temp files as part of its cleanup run.
