Blockchain size =160GB?!

I downloaded geth + mist for windows to unlock and access my presale wallet.
Unlocked the wallet and now it shows up in mist.
It seems like I cant transfer any ETH via mist before the node syncs. It has been downloading non-stop for a week now, and the data folder now holds 159GB, and still not done. Is something wrong here?
