Don't post misleading info to people who are new to technology without adding the proper steps to take, You're quite lacking in that area.

If you don't use the Hibernate feature, turn it off and get rid of the Hibernate file, it will usually be the size of your RAM pool. You can also adjust the page file if you want. There are a few other tweaks but none that will really net you a huge amount of space.

Doing those things will make sure your premium SSD space will be available for what you need it for.
Good advice. I have been running with a pagefile of 2GB since several years and on several systems. Never had a problem.

The only drawback with a reduced pagefile is that you do not get a full dump in case of a BSOD. But I never had one of those - knock on wood, LOL.
