Windows 7: Show us your hard drive performance

For a Win7 SSD OS install have you experienced SSDers run into space problems? I am referring to the Win7 7xxx UPGRADES requiring ~20GB of FREE space to run. That would mean 64GB would be needed (about 15-20GB for OS and critical apps plus 20GB FREE space) or can one squeak by with 32 GB?

I would REALLY like an SSD setup but my billfold will have to wait on a better $/GB price point.

Here's an OCZ Vertex on a Dell Mini 10v (not Mini 10) with ICH7 controller. W7 build 7137, nothing disabled. Newer firmware is out and once a true RTM is leaked I'll flash the drive and start over with hopes of something even better.
It really runs well, though. The SSD makes a Mini perform almost like a real laptop....

@Maud Dib,
I've been able to do a W7 upgrade on a 30GB SSD. Couldn't on a 16GB but it worked on a 30.

My vanilla 7260 install uses up 13.1GB, so yeah there wouldn't be much left in a 16GB drive, esp. since there's even less after formatting and factoring in real-life capacity rather than advertised capacity (e.g. 750GB translates to 698GB) which I think comes from using 1000 in advertising rather than 1024, or maybe not ...
