Re: [WIN7] Size of Windows 7 on HD: 26GB - can it be reduced?

Points taken on reinstall Win 7 or go get Win 8.

Other than those, while keeping my Win 7 installation, any suggestions would be welcome.

My Windows 7 is using 26 GB on my HD. I have limited space on my partition and it can't be expanded. System drive is SSD on laptop.

Within the Windows folder the largest folders are:
winsxs, 14.4 GB
Installer 4 GB
System32 2.7 GB
assembly 1.4 GB
SysWOW64 1.2 GB
Microsof.NET 0.6 GB

Can I reduce the amount of space that Windows is using?

This seems like a thorough tutorial:

Perhaps one or more of the options listed may apply to your situation.

Why not upgrade/migrate to a larger SSD?

You may be able to free space now but a month or two down the road it's going to be an issue again.

thanks. I still have 29 GB free on the SSD, so I'm trying to manage it.
