How much space are you allotting to System Restore or your page file?

If you don't use hibernation, you can save a bunch more (8 GB in your case) by deleting the hibernation file.

Late but not irrelevant

I know this is an old thread, however, I am working on a friends computer and I had to do a search on how to extend the 16GB SSD w/Windows 7 installed on it with a HDD and this thread appeared so people still might find this and the info given by the responder who is a "Gold Member", "Supporter", "Seven Guru", and has a "Microsoft Community Contributor Award", is completely incorrect. The HDD can be, at the least, mounted to any empty file on the SSD. To tell someone to make changes to their Windows installation is, in my opinion, very irresponsible, even if the things said may not matter, an inexperienced user can do severe damage if not careful.

I'm not sure, but I am going to try to divide my partition into several pieces to mount in various folders that I think will need more space.
