    Vista Ultimate x64 is using a staggering 30.2 GB's of a pure windows partition on a total of 40.5 GB. How is this?!?!

    I'm getting worried because the 30.2 GB's do grow a little by each day. This shouldn't be happening, I formatted my system a couple of days ago and had no problems with space prior to that!

    I am confused and frustrated, please help me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Check the amount of disk spaced reserved for System Restore?

    Ooooh, sexy!

    It's still using a massive 20gb though. Isn't that a little heavy?

    Depends on the size of your hard drive. If it is only a 50 Gig partition then it would be over kill. UNLESS you wanted to have restore points from 3 months ago.

    But 20 out of 500 is not much space at all.
