Windows 7: First SSD, What files are a waste of space?

First SSD, What files are a waste of space?

Ive just bought a 128Gb Crucial M4 SSD, i was wondering if some one has a consise list of things i can remove off the SSD to free up space from Windows and Programs.

Can i move things like Windows Temp files/Logs etc? Do i need the Page file on the SSD, do i even need a Page file (6Gb Ram)?

I will relocate my user folder as normal to my HDD.

What else can i move off it?

Also on the subject of SSDs, is there anything i must do in Windows to accomadate the SSD install?

Don't waste your money on Ultimate
If you just speak English and want to use Ultimate then buy or build a new computer because Ultimate office multi languages but most of us just won't ever use it and then there is BitLocker which secures your Hard Drive but you better have a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 chip in your computer...
