Does anyone know how to create smaller disk size Windows instances on Amazon EC2? Their default is 30 GB, and I have to pay $0.10/GB/month for EBS storage, which means that for each Windows instance I have to pay additional $3 a month. If I have 100 instances, that's $300 wasted. I'd be pretty happy with 5GB or even smaller Windows instances. Thanks!

What version of Windows? If you want small you probably need to look elsewhere. You are going to need 30gb if you are running Windows 2008. –  dunxd Nov 14 '10 at 13:12
