Found an interesting page - SSD users with low space check this

For some odd reason, Windows never deletes Update files, and just leaves them in your windows folder. I saw this link today, and apparently MS updated the disk cleanup tool at some point to give the option to clear them. I just saved about 4GB of space from my 1 1/2 year old install on my 120GB SSD.

Might be worth a check if you're low on space.

alternatively, you can symlink your Users folder to a Hard Disk, freeing up 20+GB

Are you guys using windows 7 or older? Didn't save much at all on windows 8. Curious if MS made some changes or if I've just not had many updates.

I think ccleaner has this as an option.

This has been out for a few months, also I believe this functionality is built into Windows 8.x if I recall correctly..

I haven't installed a Windows update in years.

Windows 7 Ultimate. I had to manually run as administrator for the extra cleanup options to show.

Yeah there is a system cleanup button in the menu in 8 that requires admin privileges. Didn't gain much though.
