Someone else said that the size of windows xp sp2 is 8.33 gig total and I think he is wrong my guess is 475 mb,but this is how he broke xpsp2 down and got 8.33 gig that can't be correct
1.0 GB for Windows folder
0.5 GB for Program Files
50 MB for Documents and Settings (without user shell folders)
200 MB for pagefile.sys (varies depends on installed RAM total)
130 MB for hiberfil.sys (same size as installed RAM total)
2.0 GB (10%) for System Restore (default) in System Volume Info folder
2.0 GB (10%) for Recycle Bin (default)
2.0 GB (10%) for each T.I.F (default)
How much gig does windows xp with sp2 have ?
I looked in ("my computer") and opened up the c:drive and it said xp 1.37 gig not 8.33 gig my c: drive is 9.76 gig and I have 1.46 free space which leaves 8.30 used space and I have 3.33 gig for my programs including "my documents with photos and music and well as word documents 676 MB total " also my c: drive contains something called documents and settings which are 1 gig , so thats 5.74 gig total so 8.30 used up in the c:drive with 1.46 gig un-used
So doing the math its 8.30 gig minus 5.74 gig
which leaves 2.56 gig unaccounted for, could that 2.56 missing gig be part of windows xp making xp-sp2 actually 4 gig not 1.37 gig ?
A seperate question it that I also noticed my scanner software takes up 4 gig , but its not in the c:drive where I thought it would be I wonder where its located ?
Looking in “my computer” It is listed where my partition/drives and cd and dvd and ext. zip drives are listed so is the scanner software hidden on the hardrive itself if its not in the c:drive ?
