Do we need Net Framework 2.0 SP2 and Net Framework 3.0 SP2?

We have a Server running on Windows 2003. It has both Framework 2.0 SP2 and Framework 3.0 SP2 installed. There is a space issue and would like to delete Framework 2.0. Does  Framework 3.0 need 2.0 to run?  Thanks

they don't depend on each other but some applications/services may require .net 2 and some may require .net 3

demazter is correct.  You can remove .net 2 and see if you see any issues though.  .net3 is backwards compatible with 2 and will work in its place in most cases.  The problem is if the app is hardcoded to look for .net 2 then you have to have it installed.

You might try running windirstat to see if you can find any large temp files or possibly move a swap file.  Yo can also delete the  $ files in the windows directory to help with space as well.
