Windows 10: Windows 10 fresh install used up 151GB Solved

    Windows 10 fresh install used up 151GB

    I wanted to format my computer and reinstalled Windows 10 so I chose "Delete everything" when prompted. Later it gave me the initial setup for user account, keyboard etc.

    Now that it's complete everything looks like a fresh install apart from 151GB of hard disk space used, system requirements state 20GB for 64-bit.

    Is this normal or am I missing something?

    Can you post a picture of Disk Management ? Also check for Windows.old folder.

    That seems to have done the trick. Removed Windows.old and some other temp files, now I'm down to 41.0GB used space which I can live with.

    Thank you!

    You're welcome, that happens when you do system repair, it saves old files and settings in that folder.
