2 posts in this topic

I have installed Xpize 5 on my Asus EeePC 901 and it looks great,

however i only have a 4GB SSD to install onto and it is nearly full and windows updates are starting to fail, So i am looking for things to remove.

The .NET Framework 2.0 uses about 40MB of disk-space. That's nothing compared to the few hundred megabytes' worth of system files that xpize backups during setup.

Frankly 4GB isn't enough for even Windows XP anymore. The C:\Windows directory on my computer is already 18GB, and my Program Files is many times that. You're better off upgrading to a much larger HDD, 4GB is actually less than the System Requirements for Windows XP stipulates anyway. By uninstalling small things like the .NET Framework I believe you're being "pennywise and pound-foolish".

You can uninstall the .NET Framework 2.0 after installing xpize as there are no running processes that depend upon it, though if you want to uninstall you must reinstall .NET.
