I have multiple server 2008 r2 servers with winsxs files running out of control.  I have read they can't be safely deleted, but there is a whole bunch of things I know i don't need.  I am not running amd processors so can't i delete at least all the amd ones?  There has to be a way to clean this folder, it just keeps growing!!!
