Windows 7: I need an advice

I need an advice

Hello all
I installed windows yesterday.
I made a 20Gb partition for windows and the rest 130GB for partition D
No I have 4~5 GBs free in C.
My question is will I have problems in the future with low disk space on C. I am not planing to install ANYTHING on C its only windows...
I want to know now because I don't have to reinstall when it's too late!

I think it's a bit small, probably 30 GB for C would be better.

If you don't install anything on C:, it will still grow larger because of System Restore placing data there. 20GBs is pretty small, have you considered adding another drive?

You can set Windows to use drive D for it's swap file under System Properties > Adavnced > Performance (Advanced) > Advanced > Virtual Memory.

Tell it not to use C and to use D.
