I have low disk space on C: so I am looking at ways to free up some space. I noticed c:\minint and haven't a clue what it is or when it installed and from where. Does anyone know of this and is it safe to remove? It is currently taking up 450Mb

thanks in advance!

minint is the i386 directory... it's an xp setup setting when it's used as a parameter during install.

if you have an i386, you can delete it... or you can move it somewhere else.

But i don't believe i've ever tried installing XP on my domain controller. How would it have got there? Automatic updates perhaps?

I'm sorry it's not just xp... it's windows... when you install windows, you can do a
 setup /minint ...that's how it gets there.
