Exclamation Question about Windows XP SP1 recovery backup [; ; winXP]

sponsored links

 
Hi, When I'm about to install the SP1, it asks me if I want to back up the data, so if something goes wrong during the update, I can go back to my previous state. But it says its gonna take a bunch of space. I only have 1.5Gigs free in my laptop. Is this enough?

Any ideas of how much space the backup will occupy? And after the installation is completed and successful, will I be able to delete the backup created by the SP1?

Any replies are appreciated.

Thanks.

Not sure if this is it, but there's a folder in the Windows folder called $NtServicePackUninstall$ which is 216Mb.

$NtServicePackUninstall$ is just a file that gets installed so you can uninstall it from the ad/remove control panel.
