Is it "safe" to either move or delete the service pack restore files, ie
$NTuninstallKB...?

I am trying to free up hard drive space and have an external hard drive that
would be much more convenient.

Thanks

Hi,

The $NTUninstallKBxxxxxx$ or $NTUninstallQxxxxxx$ folders are backups of
system files that were replaced when you installed various hotfixes. If
your system is stable, and you don't need to remove the hotfixes, these
folders can be removed. For an automated utility to clean up these folders
and the associated Add/Remove Programs entries, see www.dougknox.com, Win XP
Utilities, Remove Hotfix Backup Files.
