    Has any solution to having this bloated waste of space taking up valuable HDD real estate been discover/invented? I mean geez, it's bigger than the Windows installation it's supposed to be helping.

    yeah....

    the size of the folder is equal to the size of all the symbolic link files inside. on its own it takes up hardly any space.

    Edit: Meh, ok, see what you're saying. So the folder is not really taking up 30GB, it is just adding up the space consumed by the links as if they were there. That's retardish.
