How do I release space in hard drive???

I have win 7 in a bootcamp partition (apple macbookpro).
I define 60 gb to the windows...

I only have 3dmax, sony vegas, autocal lt 2008 and my hard drive it's full... i don't have any kind of documents or projects... it's everything in external drives...

Can i install or make something to release space??

I already clean with ccleaner and the normal clean from windows...

thanks

Did you use the Deep Disk Cleanup utility? - Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

60 GB is rather small for a Windows partition including programs - I would recommend at least 100GB

Yep - Mine is... 46.9GB according to Windows Explorer (In fact it's a lot smaller than that, but Windows counts space in a strange way sometimes)
