Server 2008 SP2 64bit WInsxs cleanup

Hello,

I have a server 2008 SP2  64bit. The wInsxs folder is almost 20GB now. I installed desktop expirience feature so I can use the cleanup tool, but it does not cleanup any old updates/service pack data.

Windows Component Clean Tool is already ran on the system. Any ideas how to reduce this folder ?


Thank you

You need the following KB (it should be one of the optional updates) for the updates to get available in the cleanup wizard:

Sorry, I misread SP2 as R2. For 2008 you don't get that option.
