Bloated Win7; hibernate ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just built a new rig:

Case Corsair Carbide Series 500R
PSU Cooler Master Silent Pro 700W
CPU Intel i7-3770K
Mobo ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
Cooler COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Evo
SSD Samsung 840 Pro 256G
RAM Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB x4

And I installed Win7 Ultimate 64bit, and already my SSD has over 60G worth of data on it...
I assume this is due to a hibernation file?
If not what could have caused this, like I said this is a brand spankin new install, and has nothing on it besides drivers, and benchmarking tools (cpu-z,realtemp,prime95,intelburntest)...
The Win7 requirements say 20G for 64bit version, so why am I over 40G past that already?

Thank you for your time,
-BassKozz

It's a combination of the Hibernation File and the Paging File. With 32 GB of memory, I'm not surprised that this is happening. I recommend disabling both Hibernation and Paging.

Here's how to disable Hibernation:
  1. Open a Command Prompt window as an Administrator. Here's a fast way: open the Start Menu, type cmd, right-click the search result and choose "Run as administrator".
  2. In the Command Prompt, type powercfg -h off and press Enter
  3. There's no confirmation that's supposed to come up, so if nothing happens after that except for getting a new C:\ prompt, then it worked

If you want to disable the Page File, then do this:
  1. Open the System control panel. Here's a fast way to open it: press Windows Key + Pause (or Windows Key + "Pause/Break")
  2. On the left side, click Advanced system settings
  3. As soon as it opens, press Enter. This should press the topmost "Settings..." button
  4. Switch to the Advanced tab
  5. Click "Change..."
  6. Click "No paging file"
  7. Click "Set"

When you do this, it will ask you if you're sure with a little word of caution. So of course, confirm that you're sure.

This should free up a ton of drive space.
