UBCD4Win build size
Posted 06 August 2008 - 04:20 PM
It shows as 704,762 KB. So it obviously will burn to a DVD disk, but will not go to a CDRW without doing a rebuild and taking something out.

when I built ubcd4win V3.20 and added about 40 Meg of graphics drivers I got an ISO of 700Meg (my CD-Rs hold 703 Meg)
you obviously added some extra programs/plugins when doing the update.
leaving out the Emergency Command consol plugin will save about 11 Meg
otherwise look for programs you are unlikely to use (especially where there are several similar programs)
did you add the Multiboot Vista Recover Disk option ?
Do you still have PC's without DVD drives ?

Just remove the plugins you don't want, old PC's may not have DVD-Rom's so the user may have to do a bit of disabling to get it down to a usable file size.
662 MB (694,419,456 bytes) 678,144kb
This is my file size built with WinXP Pro SP2 and I've added a couple of custom plugins.
Even at 704,000kb it should fit on a CD.

I redid the build and deselected the AVG free edition and it again is under the 700 meg. So I will have one less AV scanning tool to try and use for those systems. Not a big deal considering that Grisoft will be stopping support and updates for their 7.5 virus software come this upcoming Jan 2009.
