Does it have a folder called Vista.old? See here. You can delete that if you wish as that will be taking a fair chunk of space.

Too big. My W7 was about 23GB I think.

Same discussion here

I couldn't advise why though.

Some of your system files could be much larger than they need to be. Check size of hibernate and page files, also system restore space.
