    For me, the Windows folder & C drive totaled at 10.5 GB. Installed Windows Pro English after deleting all partitions in setup. Using 128GD SSD, i5 2500K, Z68 mobo, 8GB RAM.

    It depends on your system.
    They have a new compression thing that works in certain situations.
    I think it mostly turns on if you have a small system drive and a fast processor, but I could be mistaken.
    You can turn it on manually via compact /compactos:always
    I think. But be warned that it will slow down file access a little bit.

    Looks like Windows didn't compact my OS.
    Now the windows folder has grown to like 14 GB after updates and stuff.

    A 32GB drive after format will give 29.76GB. So in reality it is 29.76GB - 18GB = 11.76GB.
