Moving the ServicePackFiles directory in Windows Server 2003

My installation of Office 2007 SP1 just failed because of insufficient diskspace on my virtual disk. So I decided to clean up some space - if you look in the c:\Windows directory you will notice a directory ServicePackFiles. Instead of deleting it, you can also move it to another disk - if you do this you will also need to update the registry - go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup and change the pointers to a new location.

For more information check out Can I remove the ServicePackFiles folder from my Windows folder.

Check other places in the Registry - this folder may be referenced in many places.
