    Hi,
    I have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit CZ + all updates including service pack
    Installation was done on empty (formated by installation) 60 GB SSD
    Result - used 37,8 GB, free 21,6 GB (out of 59,5 GB) - data provided by explorer
    Data provided by total commander 7.56a:
    C:program files - 824 860 120
    C:program files (x86) - 692 844 373
    C:program data - 246 589 582
    C:Users - 573 220 078
    C:Windows - 34 630 214 889 (winsxs 20 190 559 114)
    hiberfil.sys - 4 829 863 936
    pagefile.sys - 6 439 821 312

    Installation started less then 24 hours ago, finished about one hour ago (including sleeping, downloading and installation took about half of this time)

    Installed - on C drive
    1) Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit CZ - what was given by installation disc
    2) ati catalyst driver center
    3) all windows updates - including service pack (before installation of service pack free space was more then 25 GB...)
    4) Internet explorer 9
    5) Adobe reader and flash player
    6) Firefox 5, total commander, winamp, daemon tool, kmplayer, pidgin - all this sw was installed on separated disc drive D (but created some files in profile etc...)

    Now I am going to continue installation with MS Office 2010 (on disc D:) ....
    I am not surprised because, I formated and reinstalled Windows becuase I run out of disc space on C drive before this installation after 2 years... (there were some other application up to 10 GB on C drive, the rest - 50 GB was used totally by windows.....)

    How long I will survive with Windows 7 and ONLY 60 GB system disc???

    Did you try running disk cleanup? There maybe temp and backup files created that are no longer needed. I also think the default setting for system restore is 20% . Try cleanup and see if that helps. I've got Windows 7 Ultimate installed on a 100 G partition and after disk cleanup I have over 62 G free and some of that is data.
