I've just reinstalled windows 8.1 on my new PC, and for some reason my hard drive's already got 90Gb of data on it (bearing in mind i'm only using a 500Gb hard drive).

Windows.old is only taking up 11Gb or so, which I'm going to delete.

What the heck is going on???

How much memory does your system have? The more memory the larger the pagefile. That could be one reason

Update: turns out windows was miscalculating the size of the windows.old folder.
While starting up windows clean up, it recalcuated it to 68Gb.

Left me with a fair bit more space.
