Vista SP2 Results in Increased Free Disk Space?

PCWorld reports that some users are getting back big chunks of disk space after installing Vista SP2. They think that it’s because the SP2 install routine automatially removes older system files and restore points via the "compcln.exe" tool but have not received an official explanation from Microsoft yet. Interesting.

Mind you, I'm not talking about a gigabyte here or there; one reader claimed that installing Vista SP2 freed up a massive 40 GB chunk of disk space. Another reader said, "Wow! I didn't notice that til now. I went from about 88GB free to 122GB free. That's a significant change 'under the hood,' isn't it?" And yet another reader gained back 130 GB of hard disk space.
