Where is Service Pack 2 Located after install?

Hi there, can you possibly tell me where SP2 is located on a machine that's downloaded it and applied it? I have another machine on the network that I want to upgrade with SP2, but don't want to have to download it, even with Broadband.

Thanks lots!

The installation files are in C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles

You can always order a CD, as I did, to save yourself the hasle of downloading it.... IT'S FREE....

And, not to tarnish their repuation, I don't believe the Royal Mail can get it to me by then :)

I'll have a look in that folder you mentioned...

Any other ideas?

It came as a cover mount with most computer magazines.

Did you delete the file you downloads????, if not, just look in the directory where you downloaded it to....

If you selected "Open" and not "Save" during the download process, then provided you haven't cleared your browser's cache files, then look in "c:\documents and settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

None of mine unfortunately :(

I think SP2 integrates with windows XP on installation. therefor you may not find the original download.
I allways download everything onto desktop, there it can always be seen and put in any folder I like.

I think the folder refered to, is only the one used to repair XP, when faults occur.

sp2 was installed on the other machine via windows update, so didn't save it to a specific location. nevermind, i'll just download it again :|

That will take longer than 1 hour... lol

I have SP2 installed OK and also have it on CD.

In order to free up some HD space, is it safe to delete the contents of Windows Service Pack Files?

"In order to free up some HD space, is it safe to delete the contents of Windows Service Pack Files?"

Most unwise I would have thought.

My C:\Windows\Service Pack Files folder is a massive 440mb, so I would have thought that they are there for a particular reason or reasons, wouldn't you?
