It has been 3 months since my upgrade to SP2.
So far, everything is runnning smoothly-both hardware and software.

I'm running a Sony PVC-RZ46G pc with MCE 2004.

What files can be deleted now that I am keeping SP2?

I remember reading that SP2 creates an entire backup directory.
If everything is fine under SP2 and I have full disk backups, can this
directory
be deleted? If so, what is it called? I could really use the hard disk
space.
