Default Upgrade from win xp sp1 to sp2?

I have this old computer (well kind of old) that has windows xp sp1 on it. I keep getting prompted to install windows xp sp2. I have one question. Does installing this format your hard drive and reinstall windows? or does it simply upgrade. I ask this because i only have a 512mb flash drive so i can't back up that much stuff.

thanks,
lhamil64

It does not reformat. It totally upgrades everything. You get better security, more options, etc.

It has no effects on your system at all few s patches and other XP things.
No need to panic.

ok thanks. Ill probably wait to install it though until i get more ram. This computer says it came with xp on it but it only has 128mb. It's pretty slow LOL
