How large is Windows 7 HP 64-Bit?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am getting a 64GB SSD and I want to know if I have room to put any games on there as well. How large is the OS and is there anyway to make it smaller?

I am using 60GB with windows 7 Professional 64bit and after installation you will be left around 29-32GB only. After that Max 2 high End games you can install.... with all System drivers installed...

About 10-15GB for the OS, there is also the page file(equal to your RAM and can change it to less) and hybernation file(mine is 10gb and can turn it off). You can also turn off you system protection(10 percent of drive space for me). Thats the stuff off the top of my head. Just look up guides on how to optimise your SSD. Here are some good links I got.
