Hi. Today I installed a mSATA on m14x, and i installed windows 7 (from original dvd form alienware). No backup, only a clean installation. Then i installed all the drivers with resource dvd...Is it possible that only windows+driver takes 29 gb? I can't belive that..my mSATA is 128, and now I have only about 80gb free.

A 128GB is only around 119GB formatted. I have a Samsung P810 128GB mSATA SSD and that is the size formatted in windows with nothing on it. Win 7 Pro 64 needs about 20GB of free space.

Have you fully updated windows? There are a lots of updates plus your drivers might be taking up the rest.

Ok thanks. I know that formatted is 119; anyway the problem already exist. On "COMPUTER" i saw that the disk is 119gb, but only 80gb free...so 30gb for only windows and drivers.

Now i have some games, and i have 65 gb free (and 54 busy)...if i rigth-click->property on "C", i see 54gb busy..but if a select ALL the folders in C, (with the (only) hidden folder "program data"), right-click->property i see only 41gb busy..so i don't understand where is this 13gb busy..
