Vista - WINSXS - Reduce without SP1 being installed
Posted on 2011-09-15
A customer of ours have brought his laptop into our office because his HD has about 100MB free space. It's only 30GB and has Windows Vista installed.
It's clearly out of date as there are no Service Packs installed at all on this laptop.
The winsxs folder is 11GB at the moment.
I'm fully aware of the cleanup tool built in with SP1, but it there a possibility of cleaning this up without SP1 installed?
We skipped from XP to 7 to this hasn't really cropped up for us yet, and like most have HD's bigger than 30GB so I've never really encountered it before.
Anyone any ideas?
