I just ran a repair on my win xp installation and then downloaded all the udates (service pack 2 etc) using the new dynamic update feature that is supposed to cut down the amount of downloaded material.
When the installation had finished I checked the size of my windows folder and it is 2.76 gigabytes large! :tazz:
Could there be alot of files left from the previous installation that are taking up this much space or does windows xp really require so much space?
I only have a 10 gigabyte hard drive at the moment because my maxtor 120 gig slave that I newly purchased crashed and burned after only about 3-4 months of usage.
I seem to remember that before the repair, even with service pack two installed the WINDOWS folder was never this large....Any suggestions or insight?
