Before installation: Less than 20GB of HDD space left.

After installation: 63GB of HDD space left.

Weird, but awesome! If only all patches magically freed up much needed space…

    So I take it the service pack deletes all your porn then? I can think of no other explanation!

    That or the cheesy music I don’t want anybody to see and only have for the purposes of AudioSurfing. Honest! ¬___¬

    Still no sign of the x86 release, at least not on Windows Update 🙁

    It didn’t magically free up space…

    if you take your HD size and what is 15% of it, that is roughly the space it freed…

    It deleted all your system restore files, that is what freed up your space…

    Don’t believe me check your system restore and the oldest one you will have is the installation of SP 1…

  6. The_B says:

    Fair enough, although System Restore has always deleted older ones in order to keep the size down, so I myself am not certain if it’s the case in my instance. Could well be correct though so thanks for that.

    SP1 murdered pretty much every Vista PC in our office, which wasn’t especially useful; IT had to spend most of the day reinstalling it from scratch and then racing to turn off auto-update before it downloaded the patch again.
