Re: disk space needed for cygwin?


As one reference point, I have installed and maintained at the latest 
stable release level everything in the latest and contributed directories 
(without sources).

On my 10 gig FAT32 partition, this installation requires just over 300 
megabytes of allocated space (to hold 220 megabytes of data in ~16600 files 
across ~720 directories). Some of that is a sparsely populated /home and 
perhaps a small bit of locally applied additions. I can't think of much I 
added within the Cygwin install directory, though; Possibly some CygUtils
