[Question ] Size of I386 folder.

Recommended Posts

With my installation of XP Pro SP2, the I386 folder on the hard drive has a size of 964MB. I'm somewhat surprised it is this large, particularly as others I've spoken to report sizes of 450 - 500MB. What is the size of this folder on other machines?

what is the Cd source? retail cd, XP home ,Media centre etc? how did you copy the files to your hardrive?

The computer is a Dell and the OS was pre-installed.

I'm the sole user and I haven't touched the folder in any way.

thats the problem right there, you need a retail or OEM version not the one dell gave you,

The XP CD hasn't any thing to do with it. The machine is 2 weeks old and the OS, as I said before, was pre-installed, not installed from the CD and nothing has been copied from the CD.

I can only assume extra files were added to the I386 folder as part of the factory installation process.
