Where's my memory gone?

Hi, I've just downloaded and installed xp service pack1, and find that a sizeable chunk of my hard drive has been eaten up, around 3/4 of a gigabyte. Where's it gone? Also, my computer seems to take longer to boot up, has anyone else experienced this?

The SP1 download + the backup files you agreed that it should make = 3/4GB

Slow boots will improve - XP 'learns' what files are needed at bootup and reorganises them on your disk to improve boot times. If it does not improve after a week, download BootVis from Microsoft and run it a few times.
