AR# 4525: Foundation 1.5 Install: Space required by installer may be inaccurate
Foundation 1.5 Install: Space required by installer may be inaccurate
Keywords: install, disk space, MB, size, NT, drive
General Description: The disk space requirements listed by the F1.5 install program are pessimistic. The calculations are based on the maximum sector size available within the file system used, and that sector size may be larger than what is actually being used on the target drive.
The install program does not have the capability to determine target drive sector size.
Realize that the numbers reported are inflated. To see how much drive space was actually used, open Explorer, right click on the FNDTN directory and select Properties.
If you would like to reduce the size of a Foundation install, do not simply delete directories, as required files may be deleted accidently. The recommended procedure is to uninstall and then reinstall, selecting fewer components.
