    To check, run following from command prompt with admin rights.

    compact /compactos:query

    Turning off system protection and hibernation will save you a bit of space if you haven't done that already.

    I installed 1511 32 bit today (it is a bit smaller than 64 bit). With no other programs installed, apps removed and everything compressed it is 4.3GB. 64 bit is about 6GB or 8GB with Office installed...

    You probably want to leave the store (and calculator) but any of the ones above can be removed with no problem. I leave mail, skype and weather as I use them.

    You can re-install any you want from the store which is why uninstalling the store is probably unwise.

    They do get reinstalled when you upgrade but you can just run the script and uninstall them again. It saves ~ 1GB which depending how small your SSD is might be useful.
    do i have to go and delete the app folders now?
    this did not free up space

    You don't need to delete them manually and changing authority if WindowsApps directory to delete them usually breaks things.

    I can't remember exactly as all mine are deleted at the moment but when you delete apps with the Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage it moves them from C:\Program Files\WindowsApps to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Deleted. They get removed from there either when you reboot, or run disk cleanup (I can't remember which now).

    I might do another clean install later in which case I'll check it.
