When I installed win7 a while ago, not the RC, on a 50gb Partition just to try it out... It filled it up right after installing it. I didn't install any other programs either....
This wasn't really a turn off as I have 1tb internal, and plenty of storage externally. Any idea why I had that happen to me? I will probably install win7 RC on my next reformat instead of vista ultimate.
Turn off shadow copies, system restore, set your pagefile to a custom size, etc. Things like that; I did all of that, and my installs have all been low-space consuming.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

I always use O&O defragger as well, although it wont help you save much space (unless you have got files everywhere) it's good for keeping everything defragged while your installing and creating new files.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

I7 930 @ 4GHz : Noctua D-14
Gigabyte X58A-UD7 : Asus GTX 480
G.Skill Trident 1600MHz 6-8-7-18 : Samsung F3 1TB
OCZ Vertex 2 50GB : Silverstone RV02 Case
Silverstone Strider Plus 1Kw : Sony DRU-870s Optical
