hi
there is some pcs that has the C drive almost full
so i checked up with some tools and found that the winsxs folder consume gigas of the drive
so i disabled the hibernation,clean up temps, moved the paging file to D, disabled the restore function, defragmantation, uninstalled some other apps to free up some space but not satisfied with the result...
so i target this particular folder
how can i reduce it
tried the "dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperesded" but since the windows 7 installed already with the sp1 "not upgrared" so it gave me the message "No service pack backup files were found"
any ideas ???
