Re: Is this normal?

That's a real coincidence Jucca I was deleting some programs yesterday and noticed the exact same thing, except that my Driver package is 3,261 MB.
I haven't checked or chucked it out as yet but I can't see how it can be so large.

Someone is bound to know the answer!

Perhaps Ian or maybe he knows someone who does at Olympus.

Regards

Gavin

I have seen simialr problems myself.

It seems to be that Windoze is just not reporting the file size properly; the file doesn't really take up that much space.

Re: Is this normal?

Just to compare it with the size of Olympus Master 2 on my computer. On this it looks as if the size of the RAW codec is bigger that the programme. Really odd.
