Windows 7: Reclaiming Drive Space
Note: Everything that follows is performed at your own risk.
If, like me and may others, you installed Windows 7 Service Pack 1 over Windows 7 vanilla, you probably have quite a bit of wasted space on your primary drive (around 1GB). This is obviously not desirable if you have a relatively small SSD as your primary OS drive.
