Reducing the size of winsxs on Windows Server 2008

I know the winsxs folder is very important but i was wondering if there is anything in that folder that can be deleted to help clean it up?  The current size of the winsxs folder on the computer I am working on (Windows 2008, 64bit) is 27.5 GB and the C drive (only drive) is 70 GB.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The size is roughly normal and manages itself. You should not tamper with this folder on any Server or recent operating system.

Run Disk Cleanup (Admin tools) and check (click on) the button to Clean up System files. Disk Cleanup may give you some breathing room.
