Can I change the number of Collected Files maintained by Software Inventory

Can I change the number of Collected Files maintained by Software Inventory in SMS 2003? I'm a bit concerned that I've set Software Inventory to collect some files off of my clients and the amount if disk space these files will take up on my Site Server. Is there anyway to change the default of SMS keeping the 5 most recent versions of collected files?

Yes you can change the default. Simply go to the:
"HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftSMSComponentsSMS_Software_Inventory_Processor"
Registry key and change the value for the "Maximum Collected Files" setting from five to the number you require.
