    Can I remove some unused file in XP? I want to compress the XP in a ghost image that can fit in a CD...

    You could go into add/remove & remove xp stuff from there. Don't know how much it will free up though.

    it is possible to delete the contents of this folder

    C: \WINDOWS \system32 \dllcache

    disabling restore can free up a lot of space

    these two are XP's own backup system

    IMHO > if your going to take control of backing-up then you dont really need restore & a dll cache

    :cool:
