How Much Space Should Windows 7 Take

Nov 16, 2011

I've inherited my son's Asus eee. Great little machine for lugging around, but sloooow. I only need to have windows word and power point on it. With those two and avg, I only have 14 gb of 30 free.

I can't believe that this os and two programs should consume that much space. If so, what do people use these machines for?

Windows 7 Taking Up Space

Oct 27, 2011

I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my 30 gb SSD. When I was done, there was about 14-15 gb left on the drive. After installing drivers, I had about 12 gb left. Then I used Windows Update and installed all the important updates. After all the updates, I had only 4-5 gb left. Is this supposed to happen? Why is it taking up so much space? Is there any way I can free up space on there?

How Much Disk Space For Windows 7 Pro 64

Dec 31, 2011

I have completed my new build: i5-2500k, 8 GB RAM and a 64 GB SSD (Crucial M4).I want to install Win 7 Pro 64-bit on a partition on the SSD. I know the Win 7 64 specs say you need at least 20 GB of disk space to install. I figure I will reduce the page file to 1 GB and eliminate the hibernation file. If I do that, how much space will i need on the SSD partition?

How Many Gigs Does Windows 7 Use HDD/SSD Space

Mar 3, 2012

I want to put an SSD in this computer for a boot drive. My plan was to install Windows and any important motherboard drivers on the SSD. What is the least amount of gigs I can get away with in an SSD for Windows 7 64 bit and mobo drivers. I was thinking either a 50 or 55 gig SSD. I think Windows 7 only uses 30 some gigs of memory and drivers should only use a couple gigs.

Windows 7 Cannot Find Extra HDD Space?

Apr 12, 2011

I recently partitioned my hard drive (using Paragon Partition editor) and it failed, after finally getting my MBR working again, I only had 800GB rather than 920GB. This was the amount I had tried to allocate to a different partition, yet it does should 920GB some places. This shows the problemI really need to get the rest back ( I make movies and need space)Gparted finds it as 920.04 GB's, so it is definitely Windows that will not detect it.UPDATE

Backing Up Only Windows 7, Not Free Space?

Dec 15, 2011

I am planning on making a windows 7 image with macrium reflect free. Windows 7 is installed on a 290 GB partition. Now, only 22.3 GB of that space is being used, pretty much by windows 7 and other third-party programs. Will macrium reflect back up that 22.3 GB or back up all 290 GB which is mostly free space? ( I know that the question seems a little weird, but I want to make sure)

Harddisk Space Decreasing On Windows 7?

May 22, 2011

I am wondering why my Harddisk space on windows 7 keeps decreasing. From 30 Gb of free space to 13Gb. As i had 2 partition. All my downloads are in my second partition while i only store applications like games in the first. However i did not download anything but my free space in the first partition kept decreasing. I tried turning off system restore but only about 1Gb was restored. Is this some system settings with windows 7?

Windows User Data Take Up To Much Space On SSD

Jan 22, 2013

I have noticed that my SSD has been filling up quite fast lately. So I went to remove some programs thinking that was the issue, with no luck. *snap* So I did a disk cleaner run, removed 32gbs of info of it. Went to install ''Assassins Creed 3'' (Got the game off ''Gamerfanshop'') installed it my HDD. All was good, checked my SSD now its back down to 12gbs (82gbs total). Went to see what the issue was, it says that there is 41GBS of info on my Windows user. I open it to see where all the information was and I only find 12gbs in it...

Need To Allocate More Space To C Drive On Windows 7 Computer

Jan 15, 2012

My girlfriend came to me saying she was trying to do something on her windows 7 computer and it said she had no space to complete or something. I have never owned a windows computer so I am a little rusty on the subject. Looking at her computer she has 58 GB on her C drive and a little under 400 GB on her D drive. She had ~175 GB free on her D drive and almost none on her C drive. Is there any way to take space from the D drive and add it to the C drive? Also, I think its odd that her C:/users folder is only 25 GB. My assumption is most everything she installs and adds to her computer will go into the users folder. If she has a 500 GB HDD, why would 60%+ of the HDD be in use? is windows 7 just that big?

Installed Windows 7 On An SSD, 5gb Space Left, Set Default To Another?

Sep 30, 2012

I installed windows 7 on a 60gb OCZ SSD for a faster boot, and it's been wonderful until I realized that I only had 5gb of space left on it, I have a 1tb hard drive and a 500gb one and i'd like to set the default of everything to install on either one of those, is there a way to do that? By this i mean libraries, temp files, download defaults, install defaults, stuff like that.'ve already changed a few libraries and my temp, but stuff still manages to find a way on the SSD, like I just purchased Photoshop CS6 and I told it to install onto the 500gb hard drive but then i realized i had less space on my C:// drive and then when I looked around I realized it dumped a bunch of crap.

Not Enough Space On Hard Drive / Installing Windows 7

Oct 6, 2010

When I try to install windows 7 I get to the point where you have to select which drive/partition you want to install it on. This is when the installation hits a brick wall. I had recently backed up and reformatted a 270GB partition of my HDD and decided to use that to install my windows 7 on it. The problem is that when I try to install it on that partition it says that I don't have enought space even though it has 270GB free. I've tried running the setup from windows xp and from the disc via reboot.

How To Reclaim Deleted Partition Space In Windows 7

Aug 12, 2012

I have Win7 installed as my OS. In my desktop I have 2 different physical hard-drives. First one is 40 GB which is whole C-Drive without any partitions. Now the other hard-drive is having capacity of 500 GB, which I had divided into 4 partitions namely D, E, F (each 100 GBs) and the last one is G-Drive with 200 GBs capacity. Now, 2 days back I had used Win 7's inbuilt Disk Management tool and had shrunk my D-Drive by 15 GBs. Hence, I had got a new partition with 15 GBs capacity which I named as Z-Drive (just to recognise it very easily).

Today my work was over and I had no need for that Z-Drive anymore so I just explored 'My Computer and formatted Z-Drive using right-click context menu. After formatting Z-Drive I started Disk Management tool. I just right-clicked Z drive and clicked 'delete volume' so that I may get that much space as 'Unallocated' and then I would again extend the D-Drive (or so I thought). But when I deleted my Z-Drive, don't know how but G-Drive also got deleted along with it and now both Z and G drives are shown by green color in Disk Management tool and they are showing their capacity (15 GBs and 200 GBs respectively) as free space!

I have a lot of crucial and important data and files on G-Drive. How this G-Drive got deleted automatically along with Z-Drive?? And I haven't formatted G-Drive, are my files and data still present on G-Drive? After all this I right clicked 200 GBs partition (G-Drive) and selected 'New Simple Volume' and followed the steps accordingly (I had checked 'Do not format partition' while creating 'New Simple Volume on that green colored 200 GBs space) but this tool waits for 3-4 minutes and gives error message as "The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer".

I had refreshed and restarted the computer several times after that and tried to create that 'New Simple Volume' but every time the same error-message pops up. Is my data still safe on that 200GBs space (as I had checked 'Do not format partition' while creating 'New Simple Volume')? How I can convert that 200 GBs space into G-Drive? I have a lot of important data and files on G-Drive!
