Hi all, I just built a brand new PC three days ago. It is a Gigabyte GA-MA770T motherboard with a AMD Athlon II X3 450 3.2GHz CPU and a 500GB Hard Drive. The build went well and I installed the copy of Windows 7 Home Premium I had bought with the parts. As this was my first experience with Win7 I have spent a lot of time checking out the various features and noticed that in system information I have already got 54GB of files. I imported approx 15GB from my previous Windows XP Home Edition PC and am struggling to see what the other 39GB are. Is there a simple answer to this, does a Windows 7 install take up approx 39GB?. On WinXP iirc it was 11-14GB and if I added my own files it was there or thereabouts to the figure shown in system.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3, CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 450 Processor, Memory: OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz,Graphics: PowerColor HD 5750 1GB GDDR5,
PSU: Corsair 430W CX PSU 4x SATA 1x PCI-E, Hard Drive:Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache.
