upgrading to windows 7

  KPC 16:33 31 Mar 2012

Ive upgraded os to win 7 and i am wondering what is taking up a huge amount of space on my hard drive which is 1tb. With everything updated and no sizeable programs on the drive it says the room left is 889 gb of 931gb. thats a hell of alot of space taken for a operating system.

If you "upgraded" a previous version of Windows, rather than "clean installing" Windows 7, you will probably have a Windows.old folder containing all the files from the older installation. Was this the way you did it?

My system partition (including all programmes plus W7 is 64Gig. I use a free tree size to see what is where:

My W7 Pro installation including the XP Virtual PC is around 16GB.
