Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended. That's sadly not an option with this package. A lot of this comes from installer programs -- when you install new stuff it decompresses data into the temp space. After running the cleaning tool, it dropped to 8.48 GB - nearly 2.5 GB!

Now that Vista SP1 is out, there is a tool which will remove all of the RTM versions of updated components. They are totally ignoring their responsibility to their customers.

No wonder that expensive proprietary software is then full of bugs and nasty badly behaved code which relies on bugs and bad behaviour in the system libraries, which change as soon We see it all the time while out on site. Where can it all be?!! it was 500,000 100kb files in there (52 gigs) It took overnight to get rid of the file.

SP2 also includes a Service Pack Clean-up tool (Compcln.exe), which helps restore the hard disk space by permanently deleting the previous versions of the files (RTM and SP1) that are being Will probably take an hour or so do to a check disk on that.
