Posted on 2004-08-06

We have recently began deploying software packages through Active Directory.  The package deploys successfully to all machines.  After the deployment we remove the assigned package from the GPO.  Is there a way to go in and verify the size of the GPO has reverted back to its original size or close to it once the package has been removed?

on any of your domain controllors you may look in the sysvol

go to \\domaincontrollor\sysvol\domainname\policies

under policies you will see a folder for each of your group policies.

Right click and select properties and look at the size of these folders. If any are very large then open the folder and look in the Machine\Applications or the User\APplications folders.

I would look through all the folders of one, just to get a good idea of what is in there ;)
