After installing SP2 my windows folder has grown to 4.35GB;19,697 files and 1,133 folders. Is this normal? Included are a large number of $Ntuninstall-----$ folders, which I understand are for uninstalling security updates etc. Does not SP2 include these? and if so can I reclaim disk space by removing them? This would also include txt files with similar file names. Is it also safe to remove tmp and dmp files which seem to swill around my setup.
Still in the dark about size of my installation.The size is bigger than some older hard disks. Is B.Gates selling hard disks now? or is this bloated size thru design. I think not, but trying to find an answer is like finding hens teeth!
SP2 added around 1GB to my windows folder. Went from 1.4GB to 2.4GB. Since then I've deleted the Uninstall Folder which is C:\Windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$ and reclaimed around 300mb. (I've got an image to fall back on if it goes horribly wrong.)
There is a similar thread going on on the SP2 Forum which might give you some more information.
