A Korean friend has a laptop with Windows 7 and a HDD of 60GB, with only a few MB of space left. Upon inquiry, she only uses 8GB, plus some mandatory Korean software (a few GB), and the problem resides with Windows itself as it is taking 40 of her 60 GB!
As a Korean she is stuck with Windows, but is there anything I can do to bring Windows back to its senses? I don't want to gain a few GB at this point, I am looking for a solution which would bring back some sanity to this system.
Winsxs takes up 17GB, and Installer 14 GB. System32 is reasonable with 3GB...
Edit: I'd like to stress she is not a power user. It's a mid range laptop that she uses ONLY FOR BROWSING. She never installed any software aside from the minimum needed in Korea to access websites and pay (which is why Koreans are stuck with using Windows). No games, nothing. I'd like to cut down on the Winsxs and Installer folders especially, but it seems Windows won't allow that. What do?
