I have a sever storage issue and while trying to recover space I noticed that the C:\Windows\Installer folder is 10GB. Had a look at another SBS server on another site and it was 3GB in size. I have read that this folder is safe to delete using msizap.exe. I am told this is the folder where all uninstallers sit. I am planning on archiving a full back up tonight and run the msizap.exe.
If I need to restore the files that where deleted is it going to be an issue?
Does deleting some of the files affect other areas of the file system or registry?
Windows Small Business Server 2008
Look forward to hearing from you!
