  1. Hi, i have put windows 7 Rc onto my computer,it is running fine and seems to be as good as XP if not better,the problem is when i look how much space is used on my harddrive its amount is 17GB and thats even after deleting the windows old folder,Originally i had windows xp 32 bit installed.Surely there must be some thing there not really needed.Regards Martin.

    There are probably a great many things you can do to tune it up. We will all find out in time. The RC might also contain a great deal of hidden debugging code that will not be there in the final version.
