Probably. There's the index files used for lookup/scoring, the stored
fields returned when retrieving hits, and the data used by the
highlighter, which basically duplicates what's in the index files.
If you don't care about highlighting/excerpting and you just want to
fetch titles, set "stored" and "vectorized" to 0 for everything but
the "title" field and you'll cut down significantly on disk usage.

I strongly recommend using a real HTML parser rather than the cheesy
regex tag stripper in the sample app. It's only there because it's
easy to grok at a glance.
