Whai is XP'2 Default size...


Recommended Posts

Well, im not about to install and see.

I was thinking whats the size right after the install?

And I think I've forgotten the effect of the Pagefile.

That can easily add 1 or 2 GB might depend on the HD size and how

XP allocates the size, I think it was percentage...

But thanks for answer.

By itself the *ENTIRE* Windows XPSP2 install (including program files folder) does not cross 1.2 GB.

But you should ensure that you have atleast 3 or 4 GB of free-space on the partition where you will install XP, to give breathing space for system restore, DLLcache, hibernate, swap-file. But you can delete these things after install is completed - to cut-down on disk-usage.
