Please do not top post.

I can not see a mention of the FR in the new patch you sent.  Did you 
just resend the old one?

But getting to more a basic level with this.  What does this achieve? 
It is not an actual measure of additional space needed to update given 
it does not account for the downloaded file.  So it can not be used to 
check if your system will run out of space on an upgrade.
