I just started with building Yocto project from its Quick Start manual. What made made me stare was 50 GB minimum space requirement.

Do I really need that much ? If so why ? And if not minimum how much is required ?

Please do not ask me questions like if I don't have even 50 GB in my PC  or how come there is so much less space in my PC. The fact is I have dual booted with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I didn't expect such huge space requirement so at the time of installation I kept only about 32 GB for Ubuntu. Considering 4-5 GB with Ubuntu system I have now only about 25 GB space with Ubuntu.

However I can still the Windows drives from Ubuntu. Is it possible for me to use these windows drives for installing Yocto in my Ubuntu PC ?
