Windows 7: Loosing Disk Space on System Update

06 Jun 2015   #31

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

pagefile.sys is within that 29 files, 2.9GB for OP. The rest I have no idea, hiberfil.sys perhaps?

Mine is 15 files, 1GB total. (pagefile 600MB)

Here are the most odd-looking files
Hyberfill.sys 2.2 GB
1 GB per 4 Symantec Log folders
7.8 GB inside Winsxs Folder
3.6 GB inside installer folder

Hmm, as we have pointed out before it is your user files.

The ones you list there are alright apart from Symantec Log folders (perhaps some setting within application to limit logs?)

Transfer some files from Users folder to an external HDD (like 20-30 GB) and see how much space will be lost.
