Are you wondering how to free up disk space after Vista SP1?

I suppose that I wasn’t looking that specifically after installing SP1 for Vista; however, it did seem like my disk space was dwindling faster than I thought it should have.

PreSp1Clean Just this morning I went through my installed programs list and removed some that I was no longer using.  It did free up some space.  Although I had plenty of space after this time I found an article from Greg’s Cool [Insert Clever Name] of the Day.  The title read “Don’t think you’ll need to uninstall Vista SP1? Want to recover up to a gig of drive space? Then check out the Vista SP1 File Removal Tool.

At times I have to wonder what the odds are that the very thing I am doing or looking for shows up on someone’s blog post…but I digress.

PostSpiClean Greg cited the post NicolBlog“Window Vista SP1 File Removal Tool” AKA “how to recover disk space after Vista SP1 installation” . which described how to use the Windows Vista SP1 File Removal tool (Vsp1cln.exe).  After reading about the tool and running the instructions, I reclaimed almost 1GB of space as Greg suggested.  Thanks Greg!
