    did you do a normal non-custom install? Usually custom installs are much smaller. I always do that.

    What you might want to do next time, is select the custom install in the install options at the beginning of the process. That way you dont install all the foregin lang's and extra printer drivers etc... those take up space along with extra apps that you may not use as well.

    Hypoluxa is right about the extra print drivers and extra languages that take up extra space. Plus you probably have an archive folder now too, which is normal for your type of install.

    And you need more than 218.6 gigs?
