It just so happens that last night I had to check the space
requirements for all of the Family Search CDs so that we
can update our documentation. Here is the exact sizes that
the CDs take up:
CD set Space used
Ancestral File 5,474,394,112
Family History Lib. Cat. 433,143,808
IGI Addendum 9,550,921,728
IGI British Isles 5,651,169,280
IGI Central Europe 1,492,623,360

IGI North America 3,165,757,440
IGI Norway 497,557,504
IGI South America 471,912,448

Military Death Index 515,850,240
Scottish Church Records 635,568,128
Social Security Death 1,411,567,616
There are some others (Asia, Misc, etc) that we don't
have installed yet due to a lack of the original CDs.
Don't ask, it's a sore spot.
Our C: drive, where the OS (Win98) and all apps are
installed uses 420M. That makes the grand total ~35G.
We have about 50G, so we're also looking at putting
some census CDs and some other stuff on there.
We've created documentation for standardizing the
configuration of each PC, for the setup of Windows95
(all the workstations) and for installing all of our
applications. I'm updating them today and tomorrow.
When I finish them, I'll send them in for criticisms
and for the benefit of others.
