If you're talking about Windows folder, my Vista Windows folder is at 16GB after 2 years of usage.

Is it normal with windows 7 ultimate?

If you're talking about the entire Windows folder, then yes, it's perfectly normal. My Windows folder currently is 10.6GB (Windows 7 Professional).

I've had the same question, but that's system restore points and shadow copies. Well, windows 7 by default allots 10% of your total HD space(drive C) for restore points and shadow copies. So its perfectly normal.

What VaynardX is true, however, if system restore is turned off. You might want to check if there is an application installed on your computer that creates back ups every now and then.

But based from the TS stated, its 75% that its system restore is eating up your space.
