    I have tha same as Adam - assigned 80GB for Windows on my SSD and it still have over 60% free - that's with Office 2013 amd Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 (which both arbitrary installs files to Windows drive irrespective where you install the executable)

    As far as WimBoot is concerned - just make sure you integrate all updates before installing - the updates will consume additional disk space.

    Access is terrible for that. It sticks nearly 1GB in the Installers folder.

    Replace the 32GB mSATA SSD with a larger one if problems arise. If no problems then nothing to worry about.
