    How big is the windows installation supposed to be?


    So I've recently installed windows on my C: drive HDD then cloned it to an SSD when i got one E: I was shocked to notice that 80gb out of 120 had been used. I tried looking at the properties and the total space from each folder Program files, Windows, windows.old, etc. is less than 80gb. The few programs i have installed are things like discord and streamlabs. No games, no software like photoshop, after effects etc. I have a feeling it might be because i installed windows 10 twice on the same drive in a mistake i made during the first installation and that might have cloned both OS's.


    Is there another reason why 80gb would be used already? Is there a way to see whats taking up my space?

    Any help would be appreciated

    :)

    Step 1

    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.
