Default Should Windows be using this much space

I was looking at WinDIRStat today to see what was using all the space on my SSD and i noticed windows was using quite a bit. Now this could be completely normal but i just wanted to see what other think

after piles of updates, windows will grow like that

if it's windows 8 though, you can run dism from command prompt with the /startcomponentcleanup switch and it will get rid of old versions of system files that are no longer used and free up some space
