Space on Solid State C Drive

Adding a SSD for a C drive does make a system faster but they are much smaller than regular hard drives. 

I found this article that said that you can safely delete old files in the windows temp folder. It freed up over 25 GB of space for me.

Run "Disk Cleanup" and get rid of Windows Update files.

Use WinDirStat to find files to delete

- Delete the contents of C:\WINDOWS\Installer\$PatchCache$\Managed. See also this.  This folder was 4.6 GB for my in June 2015!
- Also try this "
Is it safe to delete files Under C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download" this was 1.6 GB
- Delete *.dmp files.
Delete Acrobat Setup Files

Uninstall Microsoft Windows SDK
