I am foxed by this strange event. Yesterday I uninstalled IE9 and WMP from my C drive including their related applications. After that I made a new image of the Drive with Acronis 2011.
Everything went smoothly with nary a hitch. However later when I checked the image size I noticed that the earlier image with IE9, WMP and components was 8.09 gigabytes but the new image sans them was 8.15 gigabytes.
The later image should have been smaller in size and about 8.00 gigabytes. I wonder why it is 60 megabytes bigger. What could have caused this to happen?
