Default Upgraded My Dinosaur To WINDOWS 8

Got a free copy of 8 pro from work and figured I would install it on my old HP (runs vista, 2gb ram, 160gb hd) to see if I could extend its life a long enough for me to decide what I'd get next.

The hard drive has been practically full for the past year and a half. I got an external hard drive for my birthday and have been backing everything up. In total, I have about 40gb of files.

Anyway, I got the copy yesterday and started the upgrade. As part of the process, it asked if I wanted to keep files or delete.

I said delete.

With all my files, anything temporary, and program files deleted, I figured I'd have a good amount of storage to work with.

Not the case.

I only have about 29gb free on this thing and am wondering if anyone knows what would be taking up all of the space.

you did the upgrade option? i would boot from Cd and install that way. Its alot cleaner you can delete the whole partition of the hard and create a new one and go from there.

OK. Didn't think it made a difference. Good to know. Might give it a shot before the day ends.

Thanks
