Okay, so in my system I have an 128GB SSD as my primary boot drive. By going to C:\ and looking at all files and folders including hidden files, it only comes out to about 45.8GB. Last I checked, 128 - 45.8 = 82.2 GB. So why do I only have 25GB free? I have run CCleaner a few times and that frees up a gig or two but that usually is cookies or something like that.

Any ideas?

Ah. The pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys. With 24GB of ram, I do no think I need a paging file, nor do I even use hibernate. That frees up 45GB alone!

Thank you hamluis!

I set my page file on my non-SSD drive if you want its works I can still let it go into Sleep Mode.

I don't use hibernation, it's a waste IMO...but I still let Windows manage the pagefile. I have plenty of hard drivee space and there's no point in worrying about pagefile settings in such a case.
