    install of Microsoft Office 2013 Pro Plus


    I have reinstalled my Microsoft office 2013 pro plus 64bit because i bought an SSD that replaced my HDD.

    Last time i installed this on the HDD it took up between 2-3 GB of space on the drive.
    When you look up system requirements for office 2013 it will tell you 3GB space required, 64bit or 32bit.

    This time around installing it and after all the updates through Windows update, it took about 6 GB.
    I am wondering why, is this right ? Is this possibly due to service pack updates till now ?

    Thought i read last ones were end of July 2014.

    I did do a Disk Cleanup, even removed updates in download folder in C: Windows/Software Distribution.

    I also know it creates a hidden folder on C: drive called MSOCache, this only holds about 830MB.
    Told by some it is required to be there in case of a install repair and updates.
    This is not that much of the amount that i am in question of.

    Well i can not seem to find any answers online to verify if it is correct to be taking this much space up, if so i am fine, just wondering if it is right.

    Update on this topic, talked to Microsoft support they tell me this is normal to be this size and also due to my system settings and specs.

    Since i installed it again, was 57 updates, although i can not see how big each update is now, do not think i downloaded 3GB of updates unless they expanded during installation.

    Said something else about language packs possibly being cause, do not see any of those in the updates. When i reinstalled it i usually do not uncheck anything not to be installed, just all the defaults.

    Revo uninstaller
    shows it at 1279.80MB but again not including updates and service pack.

    Make this topic solved as there is no other information to state that something went wrong with my install of Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2013 64bit.

    Do not find anything out of the ordinary, i sue TreeSize Pro to check my files on this.

    Assuming over time this software has grown in size with service packs and being on a 64bit machine.
    Microsoft checked with other employers to say there's was the same as mine in size.
