    The amount of free space on your OS drive will reduce especially for the first week or two, the OS is creating restore points and building prefetch and superfetch file info, also indexing is building a structure of your file system for quick searching. After a couple of weeks the amount of space being used will settle as restore points start to be deleted when new ones are created in a rolling update so a restore point from say 2 wks ago will be deleted and a new one made for today, same with indexing after the original database building there will be minor changes on a daily basis but not much.

    If this doesn't settle down in another week or so post again in case there is something odd going on but at the moment it's all quite normal.
