    Fresh install or upgrade?

    Search - Disk Cleanup - c: - go through disk cleanup and more options. See what that gives you.

    Also, you have 64GB of memory. If you have hibernation enabled you will have a 64GB hibernation file on your drive. To turn off hibernation: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/920730. Page file can also be reduced/turned off: comptuer - properties - performance - settings - advanced - change - custom (fixed size: 1000MB) or no page file.

    For future reference a simple way to disable Hibernation.

    For Windows 7 open an elevated command prompt by click start button, type cmd and right click and select run as administrator.
    Type "powercfg -h off" without quotes and press Enter to disable.
    Type "powercfg -h on" and press Enter to enable.

    Hello

    When using Win8/8.1 disabling hibernation also disables Fast Start. If Fast Start is desired reduce the Hibernation file size to 50%.

    powercfg -h -size 50
