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?

    An interesting question, my geth-folder of the Ethereum Network is of size ~20GB.
    And for the testnet ~30GB.

    Is the geth-folder, the data folder you are talking about?
