20gb is win 7 home and pro. Ultimate adds a few other stuff, plus recent updates will bloat the OS folder. You can try to reduce the OS size since the actual win7 core is about 7gb; like uninstalling features and other things off. I haven't tried this before since I haven't migrated to small ssd's yet.

I did find this post about reducing win7 install size for ssd, but not sure of how legit it is. Hopefully someone else would shed some light. (link)

it looks very cool.... but to be honest im kinda afraid that i can make a disaster with that,
there no way to clean installation like "disinstalling" some stuffs?
i was reading that hibernate keep a lot of space...but i cant find it...
sorry i know im not experienced, but with ssd price i really would save more space
