Fresh W7 install showing 49gb of used space on a 160gb G2

So after completing a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate, I checked the used space of my new Intel G2 160gb SSD and was shocked to see 49gb was used up. Nothing else is on the drive aside from a new windows installation and no other drives are attached to my system at this time. This is my second clean install (after doing a secure erase) since I assumed I did something wrong the first time. I made sure everything was in order and I'm still getting a ridiculous amount of space being taken up.

 

I ran the SSD optimizer and still nothing changed. Is this a common issue? Perhaps Windows is reading the drive incorrectly? Could there be a logical reason for this? It's puzzling...
