    Just a reminder of 500 MBytes not needed

    Who ever upgraded it' iPAD to version 4.2.1 using as most of us Window xp or windows 7 , please note that the all half Giga is stiill sitting there on the Desk top doing nothing.
    The name of the file is iPad1,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw
    In Windows XP it sits in C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPad Software Updates
    You can safely delete it since you are already working more then a month with it.

    I didn't check for the location in Windows 7 that runs on my desk-top.
    Hope some one will put it here as a follow up/

    I don't see the point here... If you need to restore you will need the firmware file again.

    In this day and age is half a gigabyte really that much of a big deal?
