Why a does a20 odd MB download turn into 200 odd MB load space on my HDD?

Adobe Reader has an unusual compression applied to the download, specifically optimised for small size.

Just seems a huge waste of HDD space to read the occasional PDF file, is Sumatra ok?

Isn't 200MB about 2cents worth of disk?

The MSI should be ~ 30 MB and Adobe Reader after installation occupies ~75 MB. The msi packages compress a lot of the stuff that is to be installed. I shudder to think what you might have acquired there with 200MB on disk! Did you get it from the Adobe site or somewhere else?

Who in their right mind uses Adobe Reader anyway?

From the Adobe site.

Not on a 20Gb HDD!
