That's what my cd file says in properties and that is what the properties says for it on my hard drive also.
What is it in windows explorer, under size?
Mine is 272,391KB.

Hi Sandi, Yips, I better check my original copy of sp2 on the hard drive, copied off the cd. AutoStream copied my xp cd, so that part should be ok. Thanks,

Sandi, If you still have your completed iso file, how big is it if you do a properties on it? Mine is 533 MB (559,710,208 bytes) for the home version. And it's interesting, but that is the same size as the xpsp2 cd after I make it.
