Windows 7: Abnormally large Windows folder, size reduction possible?

13 Aug 2015   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Well I don't think I'll ever get near <10% free space, that's only about 5 GB on this 60 GB SSD. 60 GB works just fine if there's only the OS on there.

I've done almost everything on that list already, that's for the help though.
