High ROM use after Win 7 reinstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've recently reinstalled windows 7 and noticed with a fresh image and no other apps installed or personal data on the machine @ 65% of the ROM is already used.

    Is there something I need to remove or clean up to gain back the ROM or is windows 7 just that big.  140 GB of 250 GB used.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi Ramoray,

    you may delete/ remove part of the folder Windowsold which contains data from your old Windows 7 installation.
