Windows 8.1 Taking Up 40gb After Removing Hiberfil.sys.

You think the amount of RAM is affecting the amount of space the OS is taking?How do I fix this? Windows 98 was great, Windows XP was great - windows has been going downhill since. Do you have to accept that as the way things are? Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

In that case an SSD stops being a luxury, and perhaps we can no longer say - "open your wallet and buy a bigger drive" - if one reason you need forum.. Reply mahs 7 years ago Great thanks … It's working great !!

For example, this blog simply states that you cant/shouldn't delete files in the Installer directory. So now a Windows attempts to keep the things you use most cached in memory to improve performance and then dynamically unloads them or compresses them on memory to accommodate other As a 99% solution, I changed the HiberFileSizePercent value to decimal 1, which makes the hiberfil.sys only 80MB on an 8GB RAM machine. Thanks!

The first thing i'm interested in knowing about an update is; Is this in the latest SvcPack - yes or no? Any merit? USAFRetMar 1, 2015, 9:34 AM DanTTTD said: I've noticed that in the local disk there is a 'Program files' folder and a 'Program files (x86)' folder. OS only, so far.

I'm actually surprised that windows didn't have a problem when it installed itself with 96GB of ram on a small SSD.

did them almost at the same time.. the same issue. So the OS is still taking up about 80 or 90 GB.any other tricks to reduce the amount of space being taken up?

There are goods and bads to both systems and both systems have failed in some form or fashion. Instantly freed up 70GB on local disc. With the Windows 10 compression tool, you will be saving around a solid 2GB of storage space, but the amount of space will vary from system to system.
