Hi Shaun, got 2.8 GB back from my laptop.

No problems.
Going to add the 40GB SSD now.

Thank's Shawn. it ran for about 5 mins on 25% CPU but I got nearly a gig back. It was even kind enough to do an RP first so there is a way back for a time.

Windows 7 Enterprise under Bootcamp
 
 
Works fine in Bootcamp

FYI, this tip worked just fine after a clean install of Win 7 and Sp1 under bootcamp.

Diskcleaner said 380 MB, but clearly freed 1.5 GB in my "BOOTCAMP C:" partition.

(Macbook Air 13 inch 2011, obviously OS X Lion)

Great tip, and good instructions, for freeing up memory on SSDs.

Thanx!
