The setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 5.08 MB (5,325,493 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 75% of users of dMaintenance come from the United States, it is also popular in Australia and Canada.
