Hi people

Does anyone know if its safe to delete c:\windows\servicepackfiles and the files and folders under it? I've renamed the c:\windows\drivercache and will delete it after a while if my machine is still running fine.

I too, cant find any dllcache folder. Space on my old hard drives are at a premium so I'm alwasy looking at ways to save some.

There are also a pile of empty folders in c:\windows. Are these safe to remove or are they needed?

Thanks all

Noddy

How do you guys get that 'Advanced' option??

To get the advanced option you need to have a NTFS formated drive.

You don't find that knowing other people's Windows folder size is exciting? :huh:

Did you know that Windows folder size directly relates to penis size. The bigger your folder... :D

Hmm, I highly doubt your windows folder is that big, considering some hard drives arent even that big.....like a 60Gig is only like 55gig, so unless u have a huge a$$ hard drive it aint gonna fit. Secondly, your PC would run so slow if u had 63Gig tied up in your windows folder........so nice try to try and show off, but its not possible.....

woot..---> :woot:
