Could anyone tell me how many GB's does SP1 and all the Windows Updates on Vista Home Premium take up on your hard disc?May sound a stupid Question,but I was just wondering.

Thanks for the replies I've had.The reason I asked the question was because I had to do a destructive recovery on my laptop When I had done this,I had 57.5 GB of memory free.I then downloaded all the Windows updates,including SP1 and then installed Norton 360.I was then down to 52.4 GB.I was very surprised to see that I had lost 5.1 GB.I don't know how much Norton 360 takes but I wouldn't have thought it took a lot.
