It was discussed before the DB crash, but I don't remember wether it is safe to delete the 'ServicePackFiles' folder in c:\windows or not...
Actually, I think it's a folder created by SP1 installation and that it can be deleted safely, but I'm not sure... the folder takes 271Mo on c: drive and I'd be glad to free such space on it.
Waiting for your advice ;)

The files are for if you decide to uninstall SP1.


If you're sure you're not gonna uninstall, go ahead and delete.


I tossed mine on a cd just to be safe.

No, that is not the folder that holds the uninstall files. That one is called C:\Windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$ .

The C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles folder contains the backup copies of system files needed by Windows File Protection.
Wouldn't delete it.
