I must admit, I never EVER would have considered this. I'm sure I still have some extra files laying around somewhere, which I honestly despise, but after I turned system restore off on my C drive (which I would never use anyways), it went from 201 GB to 206 GB

My savior!
hehe

Although, I have to admit that I owe everything I know to several other members here on OCN. So, I'm kinda cheating. I mean, I saw a few other threads like this which were all solved by disabling System Restore.

Hibernation can be disabled too which frees up even more space: open cmd.exe as an administrator, and type powercfg -h off, press Enter, type exit, and then press Enter. It happens immediately, and it doesn't even provide any kind of confirmation. So if you typed it correctly, then it doesn't say anything back to you when you press Enter.

I got that one by someone here on OCN recommending that I use a tweak guide on OCZ's message board called * Windows 7 Ultimate Tweaks & Utilities * which I never would have found if it weren't for them. However, this guide recommends disabling the Paging File which is very wrong. :/
