Windows 7: Windows updates have consumed my disk space

Windows updates have consumed my disk space

I bought a small SSD disk (25 GB) just for booting Windows 7.

Now I realize, after updating Windows constantly, the disk is almost full with the Windows folder beeing 20 GB big.

Is this size normal and is there a way out of it?

thanx

Hello Skylos,

I'm afraid that's going to be to small of a drive to run Windows 7 from. Personally, I wouldn't go with anything less than a 60 GB drive if you don't plan on installing to many programs.

You might see if using the tutorial below may be able to help free up some hard drive space for now.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
