    Question Whats the difference in installation size

    when i install ubuntu(wubi) i get to select the size of my installation... After thoroughly messing my ubuntu up(lol) im re-installing so i was curious what i get and dont get with different installation sizes. I usually go with the full 30Gb but but what would i get with a 10 Gb install? Can i download the extras i need with the software installer so i dont get the stuff i dont need or use? Thx...

    Hello,

    The size you choose now will dictate how much space you have for downloading files, such as music/movies. 10GB is plenty of space if you do not plan on storing files in ubuntu.

    Cheers,
