Thanks skifxr for that - a very interesting setup especially the XP in 3GB and I'd never heard of Wuala.
is a cloud storage service like Dropbox, etc. What sets it apart is that it makes a virtual drive on your computer. You can then use sync backup software to backup your data to the cloud. This is in addition to my backups to a second physical disk of course. It holds my D drive just fine. You are given 5 GB for free. Requires Java.Noting that as yet there has been no answer to my original subject question,(useful info. or not) - 'How big are XP and XP Pro OSs'
I just happened to have setup XP Pro SP3 in a VM earlier. This is what it is out of the box, 845MB not counting the page file...
I imagine XP Home is slightly smaller but not by much.having your XP and the rest, Java etc., etc. in 3GB seems remarkable - is it remarkable?
Not really.How does it all fit in and work?
See image above. I have plenty of free space and I don't use system restore so it just works.
Remember though, I have a lot of programs on D. They either don't require a setup routine or are fully portable
. 1 or 2, need some registry entries to work so I just have my unattended setup import them.
I can wipe my OS and have it exactly
how it was in 30 minutes. This takes nLite...nLite - Deployment Tool for the bootable Unattended Windows installation
. Requires .NET 2.0.
