    There are no programs I want to delete, and I dunno if I should delete restore points. It doesn't even tell me how much space it'll free.

    Restore points is System Volume Information in your Treesize screen print so you would save 1.3 GB. I wouldn't delete them as having a restore point is always useful. Make the maximum space 3% or something.

    Hiberfil.sys is for hibernation. I never use hibernation and always turn it off with powercfg -h off from elevated command prompt. That would save you 6.3GB

    Your pagefile is 16.7GB which is rather large. You could reduce the size of it to 400MB, reboot, set it to system managed, reboot again and see if it picks a smaller number. If you are running short of space you can reduce it to anything you feel like but don't make it less than 400MB or you will not get crash dumps.

    EDIT: my (system managed) page file is 2.1 GB and I have 8GB RAM, same as you. This is why your having one 8x the size seems large.

    I'll just leave it as is. 1.3 GB isn't that much.

    I use hibernate, so I'll leave it be. It's worth the space. Good to know though.

    Could you explain how to "reduce the size of it to 400MB" ? Then how to "set it to system managed" ?
    Thanks !

    Quicker than me - couldn't find the link

    The problem with pagefile when it is system managed it is made bigger by windows OK but sometimes it never seems to shrink it again. Therefore resetting it and then putting it back to system managed would be interesting. Like I said mine (system managed) is 2.1GB which is more reasonable than 16GB (generally speaking). I have the same amount of RAM.

    If you want to save another BIG chunk of space, as you have a SSD run disk cleanup, click on cleanup system files and then take the System Compression option. Disk Cleanup - Open and Use in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    The compression works extremely well - 85% for windows and 90% for program files. I saved 14GB making my windows 10 install (including 51 programs) just under 3GB if you exclude page file and user data etc. This is smaller than the ISO I installed it from - see here Microsoft promises less disk space Win10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Of course not. I cleaned my SSD with disk cleanup before installing.

    That is quite impressive, but since my old Win7 had 35 GB, I believe Win10 deserves the 20 it uses a.t.m.. I'll keep that in mind though. Thanks.

    You're welcome. My SSD is only 66GB so every little helps...
