Other than that i would have to ask where you got this copy of XP from. If it was from less that legit ways it could be full of spyware and other apps. That could be taking up some space but i dont see it being that much.
Its the retail version of XP, brand new. I've installed it a couple of times before, no problems then, but that hd died so I installed on this one.
Yes I formatted it before installing.
Yes it should be around 6/7GB, but guess what I've just checked again and from 12GB C: drive, free space is only 342MB now and I can assure you not a single program has been installed in this partition other than XP itself.
