Winxsx folder growing uncontrollably

Dear experts,
On one of our customers sbs2008 boxes, the winxsx folder is growing beyond control (and beyond partition size) I've read quite a few articles on the MS forums, but haven't found an answer yet. (apart from managing around the winxsx issue and resizing the OS partition)
could you please help me find a way to shrink or fis the size of the winxsx folder?
Tia

if you have installed SP1, you can try to find whether you have this command

Use the vsp1cln.exe tool after installing Windows Vista SP1
Use the compcln.exe tool after installing Windows Vista SP2

Hi Limjianan,

Much to my emberassement I found out, that the actual cause for filling op de OS drive wasn't the winsxs folder but the logging folder of TrendMicro.
After disabling debugging and deleting the log files all is OK again.

Sorry to have invonvenienced you.
